Nick Cocalis

Development Officer, Athletics



About Nick:

I joined the team at Bethel in 2019 when I was blessed with an opportunity to combine my two passions; athletics and ministry. I have the privilege of helping lead our athletics fundraising efforts as a Development Officer while also serving as the Head Men's Golf Coach at Bethel. Prior to Bethel I spent two years playing golf professionally and 12 years in development and nonprofit leadership.

What I love about my job:

I love experiencing genuine life change in student-athlete's lives at Bethel. College is such a pivotal time and walking alongside student-athletes as they experience the love and grace of Christ and make the decision to follow Jesus with their lives beyond Bethel is as good as it gets. I am also thankful to have the opportunity to share these stories with Bethel donors and supporters to make sure these experiences continue to happen for years to come.

In my free time:

You can probably find me on the golf course. But if not, enjoying some sort of outdoor adventure with my wife, Melanie '12.

Guiding Scripture:

1 Peter 1:13-16
"Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: 'Be holy, because I am holy.'"
