Greg & Debby Nichols
Serving in Czech Republic
Greg and Debby were married in 1990 with hopes of living in Austria and travelling into Communist countries to mentor pastors through Biblical / theological education by extension. Glasnost and Perestroika allowed their hopes to be exceeded and they became one of the first missionaries placed into the former Soviet Union with Greater Europe Mission. They moved to Odesa, Ukraine in 1993. For two terms they served at the Odesa Theological Seminary where Greg taught Church History and theology in addition to mentoring students to become pastors through weekly ministry trips. In 2003 they moved to Prague, Czech Republic to work with the International Baptist Theological Seminary. Greg served as a lecturer in the Baptist and Anabaptist Department and as chaplain. Debby uses her musical skills to lead worship and mentors many of the female students. Once he finished his PhD in 2010, Greg served as a Strategy Leader supervising many of the country leaders across Europe. The Nichols family is endeavoring to build up the body of Christ in Europe through multiplying disciples and growing Christ’s Church so that God's kingdom is expanded through Europe - to all the world.
Where We Work
Greg and Debby are based in Prague, Czech Republic. Greg works with GEM’s Leader Development department training coaching leaders inside and outside of GEM. He also assists Debby in a ministry to refugees. Since 2015, Debby has been actively working with the refugee families that are settling into the Czech Republic; sharing the gospel as she helps them find shelter, clothing, food, and education. If you wish to donate to that work, there is a separate GEM account for the refugee work in Prague (58141). Both their children have moved to the USA; Nic is a Paramedic Firefighter in Illinois and Selina is working with at-risk young people in Washington. Thank you for your generous prayers and investment in the Nichols’ lives so that God can use them to see His Kingdom expand through all peoples of Europe to the World through disciple-making movements.
