Nick Elliott, one of God’s called disciples, went home to rest on Sunday, April 21, 2024, just as he desired – on a Sunday morning. He was a pastor to the end.

Dear Judy and family, we send our deepest sympathy and prayers to all of you. Thankful for the time that we had with Nick and you at Piedmont UMC. Enjoyed the time you and I sang together in the choir. My son, Jason, has great memories of the times that he spent with Nick and the other guys fishing and hanging out together. May the Lord cover you with His peace and presence. 🙏🏻💕 Love and prayers , Nan Evans

Lynn and I are heart broken on hearing of the passing of Nick. We mourn with you at his loss. I am very thankful for the friendship he shared while he served at Harris. He was a true brother in Christ. God bless.

I was blessed to have known Nick as a pastor, co-team leader, roommate, friend, brother in Christ, and teacher (spiritual and with a trowel). Nick always stressed that what we build on a mission trip may be needed but the most important thing is to love on the kids.

Please know Tom & I are thinking and praying for your family! Nick was my first pastor when I moved from Charlotte to Lugoff. He married us 25 years ago! I still cherish that wedding picture of us. 🙏

We are so saddened to learn of Nick’s passing, but knowing that his mind and body are once again whole makes the sadness fade to all joy! He would not want us to be sad…We are so grateful for his friendship and pastorship! Well done good and faithful servant!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My condolences to Judy and the rest of the family. Even though it has been years since I had seen Nick, there was always one day of the year I thought of him and that would be on February 12th since we shared the same birthday just 20 years apart. I was just a teenager when Nick came to Piedmont and he is one of the main reasons I enjoyed going to church. As of this day I attend The Mill Church in Pickens because the preacher there, Brian Holder reminds me of Nick's style of preaching that I enjoyed as a youth. There are so many memories of Nick that I could share but one sermon I will always remember is the one Nick preached about turning the other cheek. As the sermon was over and we exited the church Nick reached his hand out to me to shake my hand. I did not offer my hand but instead I struck Nick on his left cheek with my open hand and immediately Nick hit me back on my cheek. I told him to practice what you preach. So of course the following week his sermon was on Practicing what you preach. Nick loved the youth at Piedmont and even gave of his own time to help lay the blocks of the foundation at the current youth building after he was no longer the preacher at Piedmont.

Nick was truly an extended family member here at Oaks at Chanticleer. He was so memorable and it truly feels empty around the halls without him. We had the pleasure of caring for Nick for the last few years and he was a true jokester, story teller and joy to know You couldnt help but to know and love Nick. He was truly a child of God. Im so saddened by his passing but I know he is where the sky never ends and pain is never felt. On behalf of the entire Oaks family, You were loved and are currently missed "paw paw." Light up the sky with your personality, Rest Easy!!

The world has lost a talented and loving man, but heaven has gained an angel. Nick was the first pastor we met in Greenwood when we moved here 38 years ago. He was so warm and approachable, we joined his church, Harris UMC. He baptized our daughter. He showed us some of the many ways God's love could be shared. Ministries that he helped start continue to today. Judy, Jill, Nick, Crystal and Mikel, we are so sorry you have had to say good bye to your husband and father. Our sympathies go out to you and your families and everyone who loved and will miss Nick. Debbie and Dale Smoak
