Nick & Karen Klinkenberg


Nick Klinkenberg & his wife Karen, have been pastoring for 26 years. Over the last 19yrs they have been the Senior Ministers at Eastside Church, Hamilton NZ; a great church known for it's heart for Mission - both local and overseas.

 In November '08 they handed over Eastside Church to a younger couple and now operate in an Apostolic role. Nick oversees a group of around 15 churches (Vision Churches International) who are linked primarily for relationship building amongst leaders; adding value to their churches; encouraging the planting of new churches and of course, seeing people come to know Jesus Christ on a daily basis! This is under the umbrella of ACTS Churches NZ.

 Nick has a real passion for church planting & has had the privilege of being involved in pioneering. In April 2010 Nick & Karen are stepping into a 20 year dream to plant churches in Western Europe. They are relocating to Holland and desire to see people saved, leaders trained and churches planted. Nick continues to serve on the National Leadership Team of ACTS Churches NZ and will be returning to NZ every 4-6 months.

 Nick and Karen have 3 married sons and one very cute grandson.
