News from Fr. Nate

Dear Friends,

I’m writing to share exciting news. In mid-January of this year, Bishop Bill challenged me to consider applying for the rectorship at All Saints Anglican Church in Amesbury, MA. So, for the past two-months, my wife Tiffany and I have pursued a systematic and prayerful process with the Search Committee at All Saints, our Bishop, and key personal advisors. In the end, the Search Committee recommended me to the All Saints Vestry as their first-choice candidate. The Vestry’s prayers and deliberations concluded in a unanimous decision to call me to serve as their next Rector.

This is a thrilling and humbling opportunity. I’ve prayerfully accepted this call and will begin serving at All Saints this coming summer. I’ll be concluding my work at Gordon College at the end of this semester, and handing off the church planting ministry of Crossroads Church in south Salem, MA. I’ve been in consultation with Bishop Bill and the leaders of Crossroads and of Christ the Redeemer (Danvers, MA) to develop continuity plans for Crossroads. We’re confident that the transition will be re-energizing and fruitful for mission and ministry. I could not be more excited and grateful.

Thank you for your care for me and for our family. Please pray for us, for the dear believers at Crossroads and at All Saints, and for our many friends at Gordon College, as we all walk through the transitions of the months ahead. And rejoice with me in God’s providential leading in this whole process. We can truly look forward to seeing, both “now and in the ages to come,” how our God will “do exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that we might ask or imagine in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 3:20-21).
