Gord & Brenda Nickerson
Amy, Brad, Katie and Dane
Gord and Brenda, along with their kids, have been serving with Josiah Venture since January 1997. Following 15 years of youth ministry in Canada, their hearts resonated with the vision of the, then newly formed, ministry called Josiah Venture when they heard about the need for mentoring next generation leaders in Eastern Europe. Their Josiah Venture ministry began in Poland, serving the local church and walking alongside young leaders. For 14 years, Gord served as Partner Relations Director stateside, and together Gord and Brenda have served the growing JV family by shepherding MIT’s (Missionaries in Training), caring for overseas staff, connecting with JV partners, and representing the ministry of Josiah Venture throughout North America. On January 1, 2017 Gord became the Director of Josiah Venture Canada and for the last 3 years has been giving leadership to our Canadian organization. The Nickersons have three adult children: Amy, Brad, and Katie (married to Dane Soderquist).
