Nate has served as the pastor of Ascension since 2010. Having been born in the Northwest, raised in the Northeast, married in the Southeast, and spent many years growing his family in the Southwest, Nate is so thankful to have come “full circle” to settle down in beautiful Washington. Nate has been married to his wife Anna for 25 years and the Lord has blessed them with five children. He is a graduate of Covenant College and Westminster Seminary California. Some of the things he loves are preaching the gospel of the grace of God, running, golf, and the sight of soaring bald eagles.
