Senior Associate Pastor
Wally joined the staff team in the spring of 2016 with 16 years of pastoral experience and two M.A. Degrees (Church Ministry, Theology) from MBBS, Fresno, CA.
Wally and Sylvia, along with their two children, Joel and Savana, love living in Willoughby. Their home operates with a "drop-in-any-time" policy (yes, they really mean it). Nickel family activities are known to include Friday night games and movies, sunny days at Crescent Beach, bike riding, swimming and camping. Wally also loves to go fishing, likes to run (at least that’s what he keeps telling himself), is an avid sports fan who loves the Canucks, and a collector of sports memorabilia. His “love languages” include Starbucks and chocolate. And no, his given name is not Walter.
