My husband, Pastor Nick AgimudiePosted: January 20, 2009
During the weekend services at Destiny Church, January 10th and 11th, my husband was ordained as the new Worship Pastor. Words cannot express the pride and humility I felt simultaneously as I watched the congregation so warmly welcome Nick as the God appointed person to lead them into worship on a weekly basis. I find myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to watch Nick tap into his annointing and develop his giftedness as a worship leader since our freshman year of college at TU. Nick has continually disciplined himself to develop his giftedness through taking guitar lessons, positioning himself under the leadership of others, and making it a priority to get away in his secret place and worship alone…just him and God. As he has been faithful to do these things, I have watched him grow into an amazing man of God with an obvious annointing to lead others into a very special place of worship. I could not be more proud of him and am so excited about beginning this new journey at his side. Psalm 34:3 is a perfect description of what Nick and I ask the congregation to do as we humbly take our place in the position of worship leaders at Destiny Church…”Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt His name together.”

On Saturday night, both of our parents were there to join in the ordination service. This is Pastor Mike asking Nick’s parents, “What did you have to do as parents for Nick to be the man he is today? When did you first notice his giftedness toward worship?”
Nick’s mom talked first and described how Nick would follow in his dad’s footsteps of playing and singing guitar at different crusades, but, at the age of 12, he was invited by a family friend to help with the worship…without his dad.
Nick’s dad talked next and explained that it took a lot of beatings to turn Nick into the man he is today. In fact, he said, “I even laid the belt on him in K-Mart parking lot.”
We repeated the ordination service for both Sunday morning services. This time was special because we were surrounded by the vocalists and band members.
