In 2015 Nic handed on the leadership of Frontline church, which he and his wife Jenny planted in Liverpool in 1991. It grew to be a church of about 1000 adults and children and has had a significant influence and impact in the city of Liverpool, and beyond. Since handing on Frontline church, Nic has taken on the role of Director for both Kairos Connexion (Kx) and Together for the Harvest (TFH). Nic has been married to Jenny for over 43 years. They have 4 daughters and 8 grandchildren.
