Our Pastors

Noah and Stephanie Nickel have a heart to see a church that lives out the kingdom of God in Northeast Ohio. They are committed to be a part of a church that holds to the teachings of scripture, that embraces the full expression and experience of the Holy Spirit, and to be a part of a church that sees men and women grow in their faith and purpose.

Noah is originally from Milwaukee, WI and Stephanie from Warren/Canton, OH. They met at school in Oklahoma, got married in 2005 and have been serving in ministry together ever since. Noah, Stephanie, and their three kids, Paisley, Bear, and Sunday are believing God to make history in the city of Cleveland through King’s Church and for people to know that in Jesus the best is yet to come!

Our Story

In 2015, Pastors Noah and Stephanie Nickel had a vision to plant a church in Cleveland, Ohio. Filled with a drive and a passion to see people come to know the life changing grace that is found in Jesus, and to see a city and its communities transformed, Noah and Stephanie sought out to build a church of people from every age, race, and walk of life. Along with the help of an incredible launch team, King’s Church opened its doors on September 25, 2016 in Lakewood, Ohio.

From the beginning, King’s Church has focused on building a church for anyone to come to. From skeptic to saint — a church of everyone for everyone. We believe that the life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and energy of Sunday Experiences, the authenticity of living in community, and the unity of a team makes King’s Church one that people love to attend.


At King’s our goal is to partner with parents and help disciple the generations coming up behind us. We also know we only have a few hours a year with the kids at church compared to what parents have every day at home. Our hope is to teach the kids the basics of their faith and resource the parents to be able to disciple their children through God centered conversations, learning, and activities.
