Nikki is the Executive Director of Christians for Social Action (CSA), a network of scholar/activists stirring the imagination for a fuller expression of Christian faithfulness and a more just society. She helps Christians have a faith-fueled engagement with some of the most pressing issues of today. CSA educates and empowers people through innovative programs, to engage with issues on both personal and systemic levels.
Founded by Ron Sider, the author of Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger, CSA modes the deep scriptural engagement and tangible social action embodied in that book. Before coming to CSA in 2017, Nikki served in leadership positions at International Justice Mission, the Urbana Conference, and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.
She loves working with communities around the world, whether through scripture, thoughtful reflection on leadership, or stirring the spiritual imagination. As seen on NPR, Newsweek, Religious News Service, and Christianity Today, Nikki writes and teaches on the intersection of faith and justice. She serves as a “Leading Voice” for the Missio Alliance. Her work was profiled in Outreach Magazine’s Leadership Issue (Sept. 2017 Cover), Christianity Today’s, “Who’s Next?” and Rejuvenate Magazine’s “40 under 40.”
