cNick Padovani | Pastor
Nick Padovani is the lead pastor of the Journey Church, who through a divine calling and God-encounter in late 2011 was brought into leadership of the church through a wonderful succession of the previous leadership team. He has a heart to see God’s Kingdom established amongst His people and to spread the joy of God’s love and freedom to the entire world.
Though young in pastoral ministry, Nick has been blessed by the mentoring and coaching of several long-time church leaders throughout the state of New Jersey. He served as a youth pastor for three years and has led several other ministries and Bible studies throughout Northern New Jersey alongside his wife Kelly. Together, they have ministered to the young and old alike, in settings such as schools, nursing homes, churches, diners, and private homes. Nick has been privileged to speak at several secular colleges and many different denominations of churches, with a passion to reach both the secular world and to see unity amongst God’s beloved Church.
Nick holds a Master of Social Work and a BA in Christian Counseling and is actively involved in social work endeavors in the township of West Milford. He and his wife Kelly have a beautiful daughter, Annabelle, and are thus absolutely blessed to have a growing family–naturally and spiritually. Nick is also the author of The Song of the Ages.
Nick shares an amazing testimony of how the Lord invaded his life. We encourage you to check out his full testimony when you have the time. It can be found by clicking here.
