Camp Pastor

After sensing God’s call in 2016 Brother Nathan came back to his hometown in Smithville, TN and started Outreach Baptist Church. Since then God has blessed Outreach tremendously the church has grown from an original membership of 12 to over 400 today.

Bro Nathan was saved March 16, 1997 at age 8 in Smithville, TN at his home church Covenant Baptist. He surrendered to the call to preach in August 2010. Before going into vocational ministry Bro Nathan served as a police officer in Dekalb County. He has pastored churches in both Lebanon and Smithville, TN.

Bro Nathan has been blessed to preach in numerous revivals, camps, conferences, and meetings all over country and other parts of the world. He has had the opportunity to train pastors and preach conferences in Cap-Haïtien, Haiti where he continues to work with pastors and orphanages there through the ministries of his church. Bro Nathan has been blessed to see many come to Christ throughout his ministry.

He married the love of his life in 2009 Ms. Ashlee. She is his best friend and greatest help in ministry. They now reside in Liberty, TN and have been blessed with three wonderful children Grady, Emma, and Wade.

Outside of ministry Bro Nathan enjoys time with his family, hunting, fishing, and farming. His life verse is John 3:30 which says “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Bro. Nathan desires to reach people to know and follow Jesus.
