Nicholas Allen Manassa, 61, joined Our Heavenly Father in joyful celebration, on Saturday, March 14, 2020.

Pastor Nick is survived by his wife Becky (Cavenee) Manassa, his sons, Nathan & wife Nicole, Daniel & wife Mayra, Michael & wife Vanessa, daughter Nicole & husband Matthew Shackelford, parents, Victor & Carol Manassa, sister Vicky & husband Charles Bultman, In Laws Bob & Donna Cavenee, Bill & Beth Longstreth along with ten wonderful grandchildren & many nieces & nephews!

Pastor Nick was the Lead Pastor of Resonate Life Church in Bradenton, formerly First Assembly of God of Bradenton and also served as Chaplain for District 1 of the Manatee County Sheriff's Department. Among his other accomplishments were creating the Spirit Life Training Center at Resonate Life, creating the foundation for the first Christian Television Station in the Bradenton area & sponsoring continuous outreaches for the homeless (or, "Between Homes" as he called them). His entire life was dedicated to spreading the Gospel & leading people to Christ.

He was a loving and sweet husband & his wife's best friend. He was an honorable son to his parents, a father who looked after his family, always encouraging his children to seek God & go after their dreams. He was a friend to everyone he met, wanting the best for them, willing to pray for them & help with whatever they needed. He was also known to share a little joke or two with everyone, just to lighten their day.

In lieu of flowers, please help restore financial stability by giving as you are able to www.gofundme.com/f/pastornickmanassa, as God works to rejuvenate their spirit. On behalf of Becky & Pastor Nick's entire family, we ask for God's never-ending blessings on your lives.
