CE National is pleased to announce that the MidWest Operation Barnabas team for 2016 will be shepherded by Pastor David Nicodemus, communications pastor at Grace Polaris in Westerville, Ohio.
Dave and his wife, Carly, are from Columbus, Ohio, where Dave has served on the Grace Polaris staff for the past 8 1/2 years. Originally from Martinsburg, Pa., Dave is very familiar with Operation Barnabas. He participated as a high school student in 1995, and as a leader in 1999, 2001, 2002, and 2003.
Carly grew up in Warsaw, Ind., and was introduced to OB when she served as a leader in 2003. Dave and Carly met while students at Grace College and have been married for 12 years. Together they’ve had the opportunity to lead short-term teams of OB alumni during the 2004 (Beyond, in Inner-city Philadelphia) and 2010 (OBI, in Boracay, Philippines) summers.
Dave might be familiar to many as the better half (according to Dave) of “Mark and Dave” from Momentum Youth Conference and Carly is known to many youth workers as the Momentum registrar. They are proud parents of four children, Jack (9), Henry (7), Emilia (4), and Charlie (2). Dave and Carly are excited to serve together and invest in the lives of students this summer while getting to involve their whole family in this life-changing discipleship process.
