Pastor Nicole Sims

Before being called to Hamburg in 2012,  Pastor Nicole lived and ministered in the United States, Ghana, the Philippines and the United Kingdom.
With her diversity of experiences, she readily identifies with the intercultural nature of our congregation. With her love for Jesus and people, she has a passion for encouraging people to encounter the Lord through worship, community and mission.
She is married to the Rev. Kirk Sims and they have two sons. Nicole enjoys laughter, chocolate, sunsets, wide-open spaces, the smell of an old baseball glove, going on dates with her forever boyfriend-husband, and seeing her beloved children smile.
