Nick has been a campus staff member with Power to Change at the University of Toronto for the last seven years and more recently was appointed to co-lead the Ultimate Questions Canadian Team. He disciples and trains Christian university students to know what and why they believe and how to share their faith. He loves to spend time with students and professors of different worldviews to learn and to discuss the big questions of life. Nick has organized, has consulted on, and been the creative director for many outreach events at the University of Toronto. These events have been designed with the purpose of clearing away misunderstandings and roadblocks that keep students and professors from engaging with Jesus Christ. Some of these events have included: “Is it True? Getting to the Heart of the World’s Religions”, “Why? Exploring Life’s Key Questions?,” “Bad Arguments Against True Religion,” “Has Science Made God Irrelevant?” and the “Relevant Series.”
Nick is a founding and ongoing member of the Religion and Society Series leadership team. Although based locally, it is designed to impact Canada and beyond. This initiative has reached thousands around the world. Nick consults in areas of creativity, branding, strategy, and marketing.
Nick has a certificate of Christian studies from Covenant Bible College and received a BA in Christianity and Culture from Trinity Western University. He has done graduate work in theology at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Briercrest Seminary, and summer studies at the Jonathan Edwards Center, Yale Divinity School.
Before working at Power to Change, he spent almost five years ministering to unchurched multiethnic youth in Toronto as the Director of the Rexdale Youth Centre (based out of Rexdale Alliance Church). Previous to this he spent many summers across Canada working in camp ministry.
When not engaged in dialoguing with others about Jesus, Nick enjoys rock climbing both at his local gym and outdoors. He lives in Toronto with his wife Jen and their four wonderful children: Grace, Iain, Jacob, and Kate.
“Over last [six] years I have had the privilege of getting to know Nick both as a friend and as partner-in-ministry, as we’ve worked together on evangelistic events at UofT and elsewhere. I have been constantly impressed by Nick’s evangelistic passion, pastoral skill, and his deep desire to see students not just won for Christ, but growing deeper in their faith and becoming witnesses to others. Nick does a wonderful job of embodying the term ‘incarnational ministry’, living out his faith in daily interactions with students on the UofT campus with a transparency and integrity that has impacted many lives.”

“I have had the privilege of knowing Nick Hill, as a fellow pilgrim on the road to Zion, for several years. What stands out to me is his ability to study and teach God’s word. He is also a lifelong learner, reading, taking courses, interacting with the scholarly community, etc. All of this, along with his natural gifts and talents, make him eminently suitable for a campus based ministry. Serving as he does in a multi-cultural city, his overseas experiences have made him even more effective….My wife and I have personally invested in their ministry and commend them to you for the same.”

About Power to Change Students
Power to Change is a movement of Jesus-followers who are on a mission to help students discover Jesus. For us this means we long for the day when no student in Canada graduates without engaging in the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
Because we believe Jesus is worthy of discovery.
We believe this world is desperate for His life-changing power.
We believe today’s students are the future leaders and the cultural influencers of our world. It is through reaching students on university campuses today that we will change the world tomorrow.
We believe God has called us to change the world by helping students discover Jesus.
And we believe this is a cause worth living for.
