HeartStrong Faith 2022 will be February 25-26!

Keynote Speakers

Nika Spaulding

  • Nika Spaulding is a proud graduate of both the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor’s in Zoology and Dallas Theological Seminary with a Master’s of Theology. After several years as a Women’s Minister in North Dallas, God gave her the privilege of planting a church in Oak Cliff called St Jude Oak Cliff. She loves her new role as the Resident Theologian. When she’s not cheering on her Sooners, playing with her cat Clive, or enjoying a good meal with her friends, she’s probably sneaking off to Oklahoma to snuggle with her favorite humans: her nieces and nephew. You can find Nika’s musings on her podcast called God on Tap or find her messages on the St Jude Oak Cliff website.
