Nick S. Panico

Pastor Nick was raised in Roman Catholic traditions in suburban Chicago and accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1976. After moving to Clearwater, Florida in 1983 he began serving on staff of a growing church where he met his wife Elly. After nearly fourteen years of service as an Associate Pastor, Nick and Elly launched out to plant a church in the Dunedin area. Global Family Fellowship served the community for seventeen years touching thousands with the gospel through various outreaches, both locally and overseas.

Nick’s love for people and his ability to communicate the timeless truths of the Bible in a practical way are hallmarks of his ministry. In 2014 God led the leadership of Global Family Fellowship to move further north in the county. After purchasing the beautiful property on Riviere Road in Palm Harbor, New Hope Church was born.
