Our journey on God’s path is varied and amazing.  My name is Pastor Nick and I am beyond excited to be the newly appointed pastor at Brice United Methodist Church and the campus pastor at BCA.  I have a truly wonderful wife - Renee, and four spunky and fun boys – Harrison, Porter, Simon, & Corbin.  This fall while I am starting my new position at the school my children will also be attending school at BCA.  

My family and I just returned from being missionaries abroad serving in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  While we had planned on being there for 3 years, we returned after only 14 months.  We served at a small Christian school in both teaching and administration roles.  It was a crazy adventure - in that short time we lived in 5 different locations, learned parts of multiple languages, visited 5 African countries, make loads of new friends, had car problems and were stranded in another country for over a week, evacuated with less than a 1 day notice, and so much more.  Through all of it we saw the hand of God care for and guide us, we learned what we were capable of and most importantly how powerful Jesus’ love for us really is.

Before Congo I have pastored at 3 other churches in central Ohio.  I received my Master of Divinity degree in 2018 from the Methodist Theological School in Ohio, and I have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Miami University.

I grew up in the greater Cincinnati area where my parents and sister still live.  I was not raised in church but had the opportunity at 15 to begin attending a small rural church with a friend.  Quickly that church became an extended family that would guide me.  I was baptized at 16 and began feeling a call to ministry.  However, it would not be until my early 30’s that I would begin to accept that calling and start the process of pursing the call.  I accepted my first appointment on June 1st,2015 and have been on this wild and crazy ride ever since 😊

Over and over again Jesus has stepped into my life with radical grace and love, and I am so happy to get the opportunity to share my story and more importantly God’s story with all of you.

Blessings…

Hello, my name is Alice M. Ayala-Rojas.  I have four wonderful children—Justin, Austin, Angelina, and Alyssa, who all attend BCA. 

I am the Sunday Morning Children's Activity Coordinator.  I attend the church with my kids and I enjoy all the love and fun that I get when I am in the classroom with the kids teaching them about Jesus.  Brice Church is like another home away from home for me.  I love the children, teachers and staff.




Receptionist

Marilyn Geiger

I Have been an active member of BUMC since January 1988. I serve as VP/secretary of the Brice Christian Women (BCW).
After working as a legal secretary for 20 years, I decided it was time to retire. The receptionist at the church was having surgery,
so I volunteered to cover for her.  She had decided to retire and some years later I am still at the front desk throughout the week!                      

Brice Church has been present in my life throughout highs and lows and I can't imagine not having my church family.
I have seen many changes over the years and have witnessed God's presence throughout each and every one.

                                                                          
When asked what my hobby is, I answer: "volunteering at the church and school."
