Pastor Nathan Deatrick is the son of a Baptist pastor. He accepted Christ as his Savior in 1980 during a revival meeting in Illinois and surrendered to God’s call to the Gospel ministry in 1992. After Bible College he served as assistant pastor with his Dad in northeast Missouri. In 2003, he moved back to North Carolina and was the assistant pastor at a church in Shelby. God has given Pastor Nathan a wonderful wife, Jenny, and four precious children, Emalyn, Audrey, Judson and Elaina. Together they love to serve God and His people, and they are excited to have part in what God is doing at Crossroads Baptist Church. Pastor Nathan’s desire is to make Christ preeminent through dynamic Bible preaching and faithful, genuine, compassionate pastoral leadership.
