Rick Nickolaus - Coos County Chaplain

Rick and Michelle Nickolaus began their ministry several years ago while living in Springfield, Oregon.  We started with focusing on men’s ministry and God morphed us to focus more on those in law enforcement, first responders and medical professionals.  Rick is a chaplain for Coos County Sherriff’s Department and Michelle is his support personnel.  Michelle also has a card making ministry.  We have three daughters and the youngest lives with us.  We love to camp, fish, and just have fun adventures outdoors.
