greg nicholson


Greg has been Lead Pastor at HCC since December of 1988. He’s originally a farm boy from PEI but left the farm behind to do what he loves best…winning people to Christ. He graduated from Maritime Christian College in 1983. He and his wife Pat have three adult daughters, three sons-in-law and a grandson and a granddaughter. He enjoys looking after his family, hockey, golf, (and pretty well every other sport), reading John Grisham novels, and doing home renovations. His faithfulness is evident in cheering for the Toronto Maple Leafs for the past 50 years.

Peter and his wife, Debbie, moved from Toronto to begin their careers in 1982, and they chose Halifax specifically to begin working with a new church called Halifax Christian. Peter’s passion is discipling, mentoring and bible-teaching. He and Debbie (a professional counsellor), are ministry partners who have found a passion for marriage discipling. Together, they use the Toronto Maple Leafs as a counselling tool to help people learn to live with disappointment. They have two grown children, one on each Canadian coast. Peter  has served as an elder from 1987-2001 and 2004 to present day.
