Nate is a country boy from Western Illinois. He attended Burnside Christian Church, where his dad was a Pastor. Nate attended Lincoln Christian University, finished his graduate degree from Lincoln Christian Seminary, and then worked as youth pastor at First Christian Church in Morris, Illinois. That church challenged Nate to plant a church in the Minooka area. As a result, The Village Christian Church was founded in October 2004.

Nate and his wife, Rachelle, live in Channahon with their two boys, Kaden and Carder. Nate provides vision and leadership for The Village and loves to teach the Bible in a way that people can understand and apply to their lives. He speaks from his heart in an honest and transparent way admitting to the same everyday struggles that many of us deal with. Nate is passionate about helping people find life in Jesus and he can’t wait to see what God has planned.
