Nick Chancey is the Campus Minister and Director of the Marshall Catholic Newman Center. Nick actually became Catholic through the RCIA program at the Marshall Newman Center and served as a student leader there. After graduating with his BA in History in 2015, Nick went on to serve as a Missionary-Intern for the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston’s youth office. Upon finishing his ministry internship, Nick went on to serve as the Campus Minister for the University of Charleston and West Virginia State University. After 3 years of building the Catholic campus community in Charleston Nick came back to his Alma-Mater in 2019 as the Newman Center’s new Director. He very much looks forward to welcoming students back in the fall once pandemic restrictions have hopefully lifted. When Nick isn’t ministering to students he’s busy studying for his online Master’s degree in Catechesis through Catholic University of America. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter.
