Pastor & Staff

Nick DeYoung

Pastor

Nick, his wife Sarah, and their four children came to New Hampshire's North Country in 2014. They have a passion to see their communities introduced to the Kingdom of God. "Every step we take is a Kingdom step because we are the Body of Christ."
One of the ways that their family is reaching the community is through their involvement in the foster care system. They are dedicated to seeing children's lives changed for the better.
Pastor Nick studied at John Brown University earning both a degree in Ministry and a degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.
Pastor Nick is dedicated to seeing families changed and communities healed and put that into practice through pastoral counseling. He is certified as a Biblically Certified Pastoral Counselor (BCPC), a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC), and certified in SYMBIS pre-marital counseling. Nick uses a Solution Focused approach to his pastoral counseling.

Kim Skidmore

Office Manager

Kim moved to NH with her husband George and their oldest son from Connecticut to Littleton in 1998. Between 2000 and 2006, God blessed them with four more children. In 2012 Friends shared with them two more children to love on, and all though they are no longer in the area, they will always consider them part of their family, and they keep in touch through facetime calls and visits.
Kim has a special place in her heart for those that have faced abuse or neglect. She has worked with Groups like the domestic violence center and sexual abuse support groups. In the time that Kim has been with the FBC family, she has helped in Mission Discovery, Good News Clubs, the women’s ministry, and for several years led a group of women to Connecticut for the Women of Faith events.
Kim enjoys spending time with her family, being outdoors when the sun is shining, and reading. She is committed to connecting people and is open to sharing how God led her to face her fears and trust everything to Jesus.  Kim is happy to be a part of FBC as they connect with the North country community to help bring healing.

Sara Plumley

Worship Manager

Sara has been living in Bethlehem, NH, for over 15 years with her husband, Chris, and their three children. Although Sara was born and raised in New England, she has lived and vacationed across the United States. Sara and her family have been attending FBC for a few years now. Before that, Sara was an integral part of the H.I.S Ministry when it was here at FBC. Sara has a musical background and is looking forward to leading FBC into worship and the love of Jesus. 

David Forbes

Facility Director

David was hired to the position of Facilities Manager in early 2022. He is responsible for overseeing Facilities Maintenance & Operations. Before becoming Director, David filled several other facilities and electrical department positions. He holds an electrician’s license and takes great pride in doing his job well.
David saw many places throughout the United States before relocating to the North Country to make it his home. He enjoys hiking, concerts, and spending time with friends and family. David also plays a mean set of drums for our worship team. 

Jens Beck

Custodian

Jens Beck has been part of the FBC family for many years, even while leading Camp Good News with CEF. Jens and Shelia moved back to the area a few years ago and picked up at FBC like they were never gone. Jens stepped in to be the custodian, making Faith Bible Church and the FBC community center sparkle and shine.
Jens and his wife, Shelia, are still heavily involved in sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with the children of the North Country in after-school programs and Backyard clubs in the summer. In addition, Jens and Shelia enjoy being outside and spending time with their two daughters when they can.

Keri Abbott

Receptionist

Keri Abbott is the first face of the FBC offices. She volunteers three days a week to greet everyone with a cheerful smile. That isn’t all Keri does, though, when she is here. Keri helps with office tasks, answering the phone, and many other duties asked of her. Keri has been volunteering in this position since 2020, and we appreciate what she brings to the FBC family.
When Keri isn’t in the office, she can be found spending time with her family and their dogs. Keri has a powerful testimony and is also a team lead with our worship team.
