Church Ministry Team
Pastor Nathan Nass

I was born in Mankato, Minnesota and spent most of my childhood living in southern Minnesota, where I also attended Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. It was there that I met my wife Emily, and we were married soon after our graduation in 2008. I attended Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI, where I graduated in 2013. During my training to be a pastor, I was blessed to spend one year serving a congregation in Sharpsburg, GA and another year starting a Hispanic congregation in Houston, TX. After graduating from the Seminary, I was assigned to Saint Peter Lutheran Church in Saint Peter, MN, where I served from 2013-2018. I joined the ministry team at St. Paul Lutheran Church in November 2018 and love the opportunity to lead our Hispanic Outreach.

My wife Emily and I are blessed with three boys—Isaiah (7), Samuel (3), and Josiah (almost 1). I spend most of my spare time with my family, but I also enjoy running, exercising, watching sports, traveling, and learning and using other languages.
Yo nací en Mankato, Minnesota y viví en el sur de Minnesota por la mayoría de mi juventud. Allí asistí a Martin Luther College en New Ulm, MN, donde conocí a mi esposa—Emily. Nos casamos en 2008, después de graduarnos del colegio. Asistí al Seminario Luterano de Wisconsin en Mequon, WI, donde cumplí mis estudios para ser pastor luterano. Durante esos años en el Seminario, pasé un año sirviendo una iglesia en el estado de Georgia y otro año empezando una iglesia hispana en Houston, Texas. Después de graduarme del Seminario, fui asignado a la Iglesia Luterana de Saint Peter, MN, donde serví por cinco años. Ahora es una bendición y privilegio servir a la comunidad hispana de Green Bay con la Palabra de Dios.

Mi esposa y yo tenemos tres niños pequeños—Isaías, Samuel, y Josías. Me gusta pasar tiempo con mi familia, hacer ejercicio, y estudiar idiomas—como español.
