Nicholas Stockdale

Hello all, I am Nic Stockdale. I currently serve as the Small Groups Minister at FBCR. I have been married to my wife Audrey, for 13 years. We have two children, Maddie (11) and Macon (7). I have a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Faulkner University and have been employed at Auburn University in the Plant Breeding Unit for the past 9 years. A funny fact about myself is that I am probably the most competitive person you’ll ever meet. From football and softball to card games and bowling, I enjoy a friendly competition. If you don’t believe me, just check out the Kickball Trophy in the church library! I enjoy the great outdoors. I like hunting, fishing, camping, farming, spontaneous dates with my wife, and playing with my kids. I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids at home playing board games, family movie nights, Ninja Turtles, and yes, Maddie even gets me to play Barbies every now and then. I also enjoy yard work and am pretty crafty at building my wife the things she pins on her Pinterest. I enjoy coaching the kids in sports and being active in their extracurricular activities. I am an avid hunter and serve on the Tallapoosa County NWTF committee.  

     I believe one of my greatest accomplishments was convincing Audrey to marry me. Our lives together have brought countless memories, experiences, and two little blessings that call me Daddy. I’m grateful that the Lord has allowed us to share our lives together.  I am immensely blessed to be a servant of Christ first and her husband second.  

      One of my favorite passages is James 3:17-18.  But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. 18 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness. (NLT)

 I have always enjoyed working in children’s ministry, but in 2015, the Lord started tugging at my heart to begin ministering to adults. In the Fall of 2015, Audrey and I began a marriage small group at FBCR. After that, we began a young adult small group, The Whipper Snappers. God really moved in my life and kept calling me to surrender completely to him. I felt the call to full-time ministry in 2016, and answered the Lord’s call to preach. I began seminary at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in Fall 2016. The Lord has worked in amazing ways through the small group ministry at FBCR! There has been an abundance of spiritual growth in individual and families’ lives this past year. The discipleship and commitment to serving our community and beyond within these groups has spread like wild fire in Reeltown. If you are not attending a small group at FBCR, I encourage you to give me a call and I will be glad to help lead you to a group where you can be spiritually fed! #RC3


 “Love People, Live Jesus” Every day, my prayer is that I put others’ needs above my own, love people well, and live each day surrendered to my Savior.
