Love Grows Here


Reverend Debra Wacker  comes from Loveland, Colorado. She began her ministry as a youth director and has directed The United Methodist Camp Hope at Buckhorn. Deb obtained her Masters of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary and was ordained in the Rocky Mountain Conference in 2014. She has served the past 6 years in Montana and is happy to be coming home. Deb finds joy in her daughter, Samantha, her four-pawed kids, and the rest of her family.

April Nichols became the Youth Director of “Rooted,” our Youth Group at NUMC in 2019. She holds a degree in Music Education (K-12) from Metro State University in Colorado. She has worked for both the City of Lakewood and Red Rocks Community College as a Director of their Before and After School programs and summer camps, including time as an Assistant Director for the City of Lakewood’s Camp Paha for children with special needs. Most recently she went back to school to obtain her Director’s certification for Early Childhood Education and has been a Lead Teacher, Curriculum Coordinator, and Assistant Director for preschool programs in the Denver Metro area.  She has been a worship leader for over 20 years and is very excited to work with the youth at NUMC and help them plant their roots in Christ and be the foundation of their lives.  ~ Colossians 2:6-7
