Nick CadYLead Pastor

As a pastor, church planter and missionary, Pastor Nick has a heart for the global mission of God through the Church.

Nick grew up in Denver and came to know the Lord as a teenager. After finishing school, Nick spent 10 years as a missionary in Hungary, first working with refugees and then church planting and pastoring churches with Calvary Chapel. The churches Nick planted in the cities of Eger and Heves are now led by local leaders who were raised up through that ministry.

In 2012, the Lord led Nick and his wife Rosemary back to Colorado to be a part of the work that God is doing through White Fields Community Church in Longmont and beyond. In coming back to the US, the Cadys have not left the mission field, but desire to continue in God's mission on God's mission field: all the world, which God loves and for whom He gave His Son, Jesus.

Nick has 4 children and holds a degree in Christian Theology from the University of Gloucestershire (England). He is currently working on earning a master’s degree from London School of Theology.
