The Rev. Dr. Nicole Massie Martin received her Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary where she received the Jones Prize in Music and the Swink Prize in Preaching. During her time in seminary, she served as Director of Evangelism at St. James AME Church in Newark, New Jersey, and spent a summer in ministry at Mandalay Baptist Church in Cape Town, South Africa. She earned a Doctor of Ministry at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with an emphasis in African American Redemptive Leadership.
Dr. Martin currently serves as the Executive Minister at The Park Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. She was inducted into the prestigious Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Board of Preachers at Morehouse College. She is a published writer for The African American Lectionary and a monthly columnist for the Faith and Values section of The Charlotte Observer, which named her one of the “Top Seven to Watch in 2011.” In 2014 Dr. Martin was appointed to serve as the faith-based representative on the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Coalition for Housing. She is also the founder and Executive Director of Soulfire International Ministries (www.sfiministries.org), which focuses on empowering others to reach their fullest potential in Christ.
Dr. Martin is married to her best friend, Minister Mark Martin, and they have two beautiful daughters. Above all, Dr. Martin has a passion for God, a contagious excitement for the Gospel, and an insatiable desire that God be glorified in her life and in the world.*

Nicole is also a professor at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, at the Jacksonville, Florida campus. The main campus for Gordon Conwell is in Massachusetts. But don’t be confused, like I was, because there is also a campus in Charlotte (where Nicole lives)!
