Nick Buda

Administration and Design Coordinator

I’m proud to be a Yooper (born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan). I grew up with 6 foot snowbanks, over 16 hours of sunlight in the summer, and a year-round hockey season. Music became my passion and I headed to the Twin Cities of Minnesota to pursue a degree in Music Business. It was during this time that the Lord surprised me. I was honored to tour with a Christian artist and work for a major record label but my heart became captivated with leading a Bible study at my music school and helping launch an after-school program for kids from broken homes. The Lord used a mentor to call me into ministry and immediately after I graduated, I went to Louisville, KY to get my MDiv from Southern Seminary.

Afterwards, I had the privilege of serving alongside my mentor; first as a youth pastor, then associate pastor, and eventually assuming his role as the lead pastor of a wonderful church in Wisconsin. After 8 years of pastoral ministry, the Lord gracious led me into a season of brokenness. I returned to Louisville, KY with my two beautiful daughters and CrossPoint became a place of healing and growth. Today, my heart is for other pastors, church leaders, and men to grow in spiritual and relational health. I want them to flourish so they can be a blessing to their family and churches.
