  • nick blount

    generations pastor

    Nick was born and raised in Killeen, TX and moved to Franklin, VA in 1996. At the age of 17, Nick accepted Jesus Christ into his life during a youth rally at the Rock Church of Franklin. A few years later he felt the calling to pursue ministry. He later became a graduate of Brewer Christian College in Jacksonville, FL with a degree in Worship Studies and has been involved in youth and worship ministry for over 20 years.

    Nick met his wife, Leigh-Ann, at a youth service in 2000 and later married in 2005. Nick's love for theatre and music mixed with Leigh-Ann's love for dance led to them serving with a performing arts company based out of Virginia Beach called HeartBridge. This then led to them serving with YWAM (Youth with a Mission) where they continued to travel to various countries and within the United States on mission outreaches. They served for a short time at the main YWAM campus (University of the Nations) in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii and helped to start the performing arts school that is flourishing today. It is truly their desire to "Know God and to Make Him Known" throughout the world.

    Nick likes to refer to this life as an adventure. "It's important to have fun and enjoy the ride!" Nick and Leigh-Ann are blessed to have their 2 beautiful children, (daughter) Cadence and (son) Ezra, along with them on their adventure.
