NATHAN WILLIAMS // Worship/ Student ministries pastor

I was born and raised in Houston, Texas- but my family moved to Waynesboro, VA when I was eight years old where my Father still pastors a Foursquare church. After being part time in ministry for a few years I served on staff for two years as a Worship/Children’s Pastor at a great church in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. I am thrilled to be back in my home state of Virginia where I am currently working on my Bachelor’s degree in Christian Ministries from The Kings University as an online student. I am married to the love of my life and am just so excited to be a part of all that God is doing here at NLCC!

Who is the most influential person in your life?
