The Funeral for My Son, Nick Challies

Nick Challies

On Saturday, November 21, 2020, we will be holding the funeral service for my dear son, Nick. Because the entirety of my family and the majority of Nick’s friends are in America, and because the borders between our two countries are functionally closed, we will be live-streaming the service. Those who did not know him are welcome to watch as well.

I have created a page you can bookmark and visit at the time of the funeral to find the streaming video: Funeral for Nick Challies.

The service is set to begin at 10 AM EST. We expect the video feed to be available at approximately 9:30 AM. Because we are under pandemic regulations demanding that all who attend in-person must be registered and checked in, we anticipate the possibility that the service may begin a few moments late.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family invites you to contribute to the Nick Challies Memorial Scholarship at Boyce College and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. The scholarship has been established to provide tuition assistance to a selected student from Canada whose ministry aspirations are the same as those Nick possessed—to return to Canada and serve as pastor of a local church.

    We are probably so accustomed to seeing bonsai trees that we don’t think much about them. But have you ever paused to consider how strange and freakish they really are?
