Nathan served in the United States Marine Corps from 1997 - 2001. Immediately following his service to our nation, Nathan went on to minister full time as the director of men's ministries at the Lima Rescue Mission in Lima, Ohio. After nearly a decade of fruitful service to homeless men, God called Nathan to lead our fellowship.

Pastor Nathan's greatest passion is to see God glorified. He demonstrates that with a heart bent on leading people into an experience of God's presence and teaching the true faith of Jesus Christ.
