Nathan met his wife Kim in Boston, Massachusetts. Kim is originally from Queens, NY but she was finishing her undergraduate degree at Boston University.

She currently serves in our CalvaryKIDS ministry and works as a Teaching Assistant at a local elementary school. 


Nathan was saved at the age of 5 and was baptized at Duncanville Baptist Church in Duncanville, Alabama.
