Call to Worship

In Memoriam: John Nunnikhoven

I first met John over 20 years ago. We shared many of the same hopes, dreams, and convictions, so it was natural, I suppose, for John to become the first Member and Brother in The Fellowship of Ailbe.

Over the years, besides the active ministries John and Betty pursued in local prisons, among those in a retirement community, and in their home and church, John devoted considerable energy to the work of The Fellowship of Ailbe. His daily column, Voices Together—which last fall he retitled, Call to Worship—has walked readers prayerfully through the psalms, and especially his beloved Psalm 119, repeatedly over the years, with great profit to our souls. John also, joined by two other Brothers, Jesse Slusher and Sam Smith, took the lead in launching the weekly Gathering of the Brothers of The Fellowship, a component of our ministry which has been for many a source of great encouragement and significant growth.

In addition to conducting regular meetings to seek the Lord for revival, John, together with Board Member Mike Slay, began the daily “2130 Prayer Group,” meeting every night at 9:30 via Zoom to seek the Lord in prayer.

John’s insights, experiences, stories, and encouragement were a blessing every time our Brothers were together in our weekly meetings via Zoom. He was an example to us all of faithfulness, earnestness, and a commitment to seeking the Kingdom and righteousness of God.

We will miss John. Our prayers continue for Betty, their family, and all their church and community friends, that they may rejoice and be at peace in the Lord as they remember him, who is now rejoicing with song before the eternal throne of our King.

Thanks be to God for John and for the hope of eternal life in Jesus Christ!

Here is the memorial service for John, which was held on April 13, 2024, at Ludlow Baptist Church.
