Growing a Loving Church
Meet our Pastor, Nate Varnier!
Nate is originally from New Kent County, Virginia, where he graduated high school in 1997.  He attended Virginia Tech, obtaining a forestry degree in 2001.  He then worked in the business world doing environmental management work for approximately eight years prior to receiving his call to ministry at the age of 30.  Nate received his Master of Divinity from Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond in May 2012.
He met his wife, Julie, during seminary and they were married in Richmond, VA.  She is originally from Mississippi, so they moved there two years ago to be near her family as their two daughters were in their first years of life.  They are now back in Virginia to be closer to their family and be a part of a good community where their girls can attend school and they can continue to grow spiritually with their church family.
We welcome Nate, Julie and their family to Oakland Baptist!
