Pastor Nate and Mrs. Anna are from Waverly, Tennessee where they have known each other since kindergarten and were crowned Prom ‘King and Queen’ their senior year of High School.

Both have a heart for God and God’s people. Nate and Anna received degrees in the Social Sciences from Bethel University with the hope of helping others. Nate’s degree in Psychology helped him develop a desire to better understand the needs of those he serves, recognizing the complexity of life we all live with. Anna’s education led her to become passionate about the aging in society, as they are often forgotten. She has worked as a long-term care Social Worker and Hospice Bereavement Coordinator. Currently, her heart is with those suffering from dementia. Anna is also a ‘Certified Dementia Practitioner’.

Nate holds a Master of Divinity Degree from Memphis Theological Seminary. His seminary journey allowed him the freedom and privilege to ask the difficult questions of faith and spirituality while studying under scholars of their respective fields. Pastor Nate’s time at the seminary also consisted of sharing and learning from a diverse group of individuals from varying faith traditions, whose focus was to learn, grow, and serve (Scholarship, Piety, Justice). Having gone to seminary in the city known for the Civil Rights movement, Pastor Nate has a strong desire to follow God's call for all of creation to experience liberation and wholness.

Nate and Anna’s hope is to share God’s love to the world God loves. We aim to do this by seeking, nurturing, and equipping people to become surrendered followers of Jesus Christ – as a people inspired, empowered, and used by God to change lives through prayer and service with the love of Christ.
