Pastor Nate is Acting Pastor until that day when we extend a call to and install our next Senior Pastor. Nate started as Associate Pastor at Becker Baptist Church in July 2019. He hails from Indiana and met his wife, Kristi, a native of Becker, in their very first class at Huntington University. After graduating, having fallen in love, Nate followed Kristi up to Minnesota and they started attending BBC in the summer of 2007. Since 2006 and until joining BBC’s staff, he taught 2nd grade at Becker Primary School, taking a two-year leave of absence from 2012-2014 to serve in Haiti with Jesus in Haiti Ministries. Nate currently coaches tennis at Becker Schools. In 2017, he enrolled in Western Seminary’s M. of Div. program, feeling a call to go deeper into ministry. His desire is to see the people of BBC strengthened in their passion and desire for Christ through discipleship, community and gospel-centered teaching. Nate loves the community of Becker and wants to see the hearts of those in this community affected by the gospel of Christ. They have one daughter, Ruby.
