For nearly 30-years, he‘s boldly delivered relevant, life changing messages of God’s Refuge, Restoration, and Celebration.

As a youth, he and his family spent part of his childhood on the mission field in Brazil, South America. This laid a foundation for missions in his life. Today missions is a large part of who Eagle’s Nest is. 

Pastor Hart continues to travel the world encouraging people to hold onto the only source of unchanging truth in this ever changing world!


Pastor Elictia Hart is known for her compassion, faithfulness, and Willingness to go the extra mile to share the love of Christ.  She is an preacher, teacher and prayer warrior called to encourage the body of Christ. With a sincere heart for people and desire to see the perfect will of God done in people’s lives, she doesn’t take lightly the calling and assignment she has been given.

The Lord has laid out a fascinating path for Pastor Elictia. For nearly 20-years, the Seattle native has traveled the globe as a journalist. She has worked for “Entertainment Tonight” in Los Angeles and CNBC Hong Kong. Her passion for sports led her to ESPN in Singapore — covering the NFL and NBA. Eventually, she returned to the U.S. to report on West Coast teams for the Fox Sports Network. After years as a sports journalist, she shifted her focus to news — most recently the morning anchor for the ABC affiliate here in Omaha. God has now called her to report the Good News.

Pastor Elictia will have you laughing and crying at the same time as she ministers to your “right now” need. Pastor Elictia is also the mother of twins; Micah and Jemma.
