Pastor Nathan has been with us at Lansing First Southern since June 2011. He and Kim married in 2006, and they have one son, Ethan. Nathan received his B.A. in Bible from Hannibal-LaGrange College and a Master of Religious Education from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He also holds a doctorate in education (Ed.D.) with a concentration in leadership and discipleship from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville.
My Story The Lord has written a script for my life that is far richer than I could dare to ask. I was blessed to be raised in a Christian home in Mulvane, KS, hearing the true gospel of Jesus Christ from my youngest years. I first confessed faith in Christ and was baptized when I was five years old. God used dozens of godly men and women to teach me and lead me as I grew.
I hit a crisis of faith around the time I graduated high school. For nearly a year, I resisted the Lord's calling to preach. But the Lord is faithful to complete what He begins, and He led me to a point of surrender on a mission trip to Indianapolis in the summer of 1999.
Since that moment, my passion has been to declare the Word of God clearly and faithfully. My joy is to see a brother or sister grow in their love for Jesus through a fuller understanding of the Bible and its message of the hope we have in Christ.
My Prayer for Lansing
That we would become a people wholly devoted to knowing and serving the Lord Jesus Christ: worshiping, growing in faith, engaging in the mission of Christ's Kingdom, and loving one another unconditionally until our Lord returns for His people.
