Nicholas Bannon
Minister of Faith Formation
Hi! My name is Nicholas Bannon. I was excited to begin my call as director of faith formation here at Memorial in September of 2010. My wife, Katie, and I joined as members and were married here in March 2011. Whether in the context of peer ministry, camp counseling, mission work, college, seminary, urban ministry, suburban ministry , and a growing amount of rural interaction; I have found God gracious to provide me opportunities to work with youth and children. Each new experience continues to shape my faith and how I approach ministry with children and youth. I am blessed to serve here with the youth, children and families, as we witness the Spirit of Christ taking root and continuing to grow in each others’ lives.
