Rebecca never felt safe as a child. In 1969, her father,
Robert Nichols, moved to Sellerstown,
North Carolina, to serve as a
he found a small community eager to welcome him—with one exception. Glaring at
him from pew number seven was a man obsessed with controlling the church.
Determined to get rid of anyone who stood in his way, he unleashed a plan of
terror that was more devastating and violent than the Nichols family could have
ever imagined. Refusing to be driven away by acts of intimidation, Rebecca’s
father stood his ground until one night when an armed man walked into the
family’s kitchen . . . And Rebecca’s life was shattered. If anyone had a reason

in Pew Number Seven tells a different story. It is the amazing true saga of
relentless persecution, one family’s faith and courage in the face of it, and a
daughter whose parents taught her the power of forgiveness.
