Hey everyone! My name is Nithin Thompson and I am the husband of Jackie, the dad of Selah and Wesley and the Teaching Pastor at Liquid Church, a multi-site church with multiple locations throughout New Jersey.
This is my own personal blog. Here, I focus on what it means to be a follower of Jesus in a post-Christian world. I believe that followers of Jesus must engage the world we live in thoughtfully and compassionately.
I blog on preaching, theology, the Church, culture and everything in between. I’ll share random things that may not fit these categories. I also share resources, training and books that I am discovering.
My purpose is to create content that will make you think differently about culture, following Jesus, and hopefully enable you to live a life of greater purpose and impact. This stuff is straight from my heart, my gut and my mind. As I’m in the process of digesting ideas, you get my raw and often unedited thinking.
I typically post once a week. Feel free to comment on the blog and share this stuff with your friends and leadership teams.
My Top Posts
If you are new to my site, you might want to start with my most popular posts. Here are my top three:
I grew up in a Christian home. My dad is a United Methodist Pastor, so that is the tribe that raised me, the Baptists saved me, and the Christian and Missionary Alliance trained and unleashed me. When I was 14 I made a decision to follow Jesus with my entire heart, soul, mind and strength. After that I felt a call to go into ministry.
I went to Nyack College to study youth ministry and philosophy. While at Nyack, I began to explore my inner brokenness. I discovered a powerful concept called emotional healthy spirituality. I also had a profound experience with the Holy Spirit where I now believe that God speaks, but also that there is an unseen world that coincides with the visible world.
After Nyack I spent five months with YWAM in Montana. Three months were on the base, and then I spent two months in Newcastle England and Northern Ireland. In that experience, I really felt a call to missions. So I enrolled at Alliance Theological Seminary to study theology and missions.
While in seminary, I did an internship with a community development organization called The Boston Project Ministries. That is where I met and courted my beautiful wife Jackie. When seminary came to an end, I got a call from Stonecrest Community Church to come and work as their youth pastor.
I married Jackie on July 18, 2009. We have a beautiful daughter named Selah and a son named Wesley. My hobbies include running, reading, writing and listening to music (heavy metal especially). We live in beautiful North Plainfield, New Jersey.
