Clay has been the senior pastor of Westminster since May 2012. He has served as an ordained teaching elder and pastor in the Presbyterian tradition for 25+ years. He sums up his theology with the famous first question and response of the Westminster Catechism: "What is the chief end of man? Man's chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever." He believes the primary work of both pastor and congregation is proclaiming the good news of Jesus, teaching the Christian faith, and providing pastoral care in Christ's name.


He is married to Cathy, a middle school educator, and together they have three grown children: their daughter Taylor, and their sons Blake and Collin.


His academic preparation for the pastorate includes a B.A. in English and Drama from East Texas Baptist College; a M.A. in communication from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary; a M.Div. from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary; and a Ph.D in philosophy and apologetics in a shared program of study from Trinity Theological Seminary and the University of Liverpool, with his dissertation on C.S. Lewis.

Nick joined Westminster Presbyterian Church in 2016. Ordained as a Teaching Elder since 2011, Nick most recently served as Pastor at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Amarillo, and as a Bible Teacher/ Chaplain at San Jacinto Christian Academy. Nick has a passion for serving with college students, missions, and young families. He tries to live out 1 Thessalonians 2:8 as his ministry goal; sharing life together as well as the Gospel. His favorite Bible passage is Ephesians 2:8-10.


Nick is married to Beth and they have two children: Tristen and Avery. Beth works in the dental world and is a volleyball coach. Tristen is a sophomore at King University in Bristol, Tennessee (studying Pre-Med and playing men’s collegiate volleyball) and Avery is in elementary school. Nick enjoys anything outdoors: hunting, hiking, skiing, camping, horses, golf, etc... Nick loves the Aggies, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, U2 and anything that involves history.


Nick is a native of Texas and received his B.A. in Speech Communications with a Minor in Sociology from Texas A&M University. Whoop! Nick went to Denver Seminary where he received his M.Div. with an emphasis in leadership.
