Our Leadership

Providence Church seeks to be led by men who have been transformed by the saving grace of Jesus Christ and gifted by God to lovingly lead His church.

In addition to the dozens of people who serve and lead aspects of ministry at Providence Church, our Leadership Team seeks to implement overall church vision and direction.

After growing up as a “church kid,” Nate encountered Jesus personally in high school. Shortly after, he moved to Pittsburgh and began growing in his relationship with God at Providence Church. In addition to leading a small group and the worship music on Sunday mornings, Nate stepped into pastoral ministry at Providence in April of 2015. Nate married his wife, Sarah, and is a proud father of two amazing (and crazy!) kids.
