Who We Are
The Lord called Nick to ministry when he was fifteen years old, which led him to attend Pensacola Christian College and then Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. While studying at Southwestern, Nick met Kaitlyn and they were married in 2015. After seminary, they served as missionaries in Eastern Europe. Nick loves the local church and is passionate about teaching the Bible and making disciples. He enjoys military history, old movies, and black coffee.
A verse that has mattered in his life is Galatians 6:14 “But God forbid that I should boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. By whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.”
Serving in Christ,
I am Dana Martin. I was born and raised here in Odessa, TX. I am a teacher at Austin Montessori School, and I enjoy working with children of all ages. In 2009, I began attending Belmont Baptist and then volunteered as a Sunday School teacher. The Children’s Director position opened, and this job was knocking at my heart. I prayed, and God revealed to me that this was a position I needed to take. It has been a real honor and pleasure to work with the children and the Children’s Ministry Team. Thanks to a faithful group of volunteers in the Children’s Ministry, Belmont has blessed many children and families’ lives through various programs the church offers. The Children’s Ministry program covers children from nursery through 5th grade.
Student Ministries Director
Myra has faithfully served Belmont as a Sunday School teacher and as our AWANA Commander for more than 17 years. When the Student Ministries position opened in 2018, she felt God’s tug on her heart to move on up. Myra expanded the church’s AWANA program to include Trek and Journey for our students on Wednesday nights, and she teaches their Sunday School class. She manages summer Vacation Bible School for the Middle School group, and chaparones all students to conferences in various locations. The Student Ministry program is for young people in 6th through 12th grades.
