Nate became the lead pastor of Faith Chapel on March 16 of 2013. He and his family have been in Billings since the spring of 2012. Nate graduated from Eugene Bible College and then from Multnomah Seminary with a Masters in Biblical Studies. He loves the people he works with and loves seeing people meet Jesus and have their lives transformed - this is his vision for doing ministry.

Nate led New Life Church, in Everett Washington from 2003 to 2011. New Life is one of Foursquare’s high impact churches and is of similar size to Faith. Previously, he built a very successful college ministry for Eugene Faith Center, on the University of Oregon campus. He, and his bride Jennie, have four children, all still at home.
