Pastor-Teacher: Nathan Stuller
I grew up attending a variety of churches across the United States as Naval service moved my family across the country. When my father retired, we moved to the St. Louis Area. I’ve been here ever since (except for 3 years of seminary).
I grew up convinced of the reality of God and with a desire to go to heaven, but I was not born again. I had no concern for God’s glory, goodness, or holiness, but only for what I could get from God.
During my freshman year of college, I was converted while reading a book by A.W. Tozer. I was convicted of my sinful disregard for God, and for the first time recognized myself to be a hell-deserving sinner. In desperation I called out to God for mercy, and by the grace of God and through the cross of Christ I was forgiven and reconciled to God. From that time I have dedicated myself to the service of my Savior.
In the years since, I have taught the Bible to every age group from 5-95, and have gone on missionary journeys to Mexico, Florida, and Canada. I am currently preaching from the Gospel of John and the Minor Prophets.
I have a Master of Divinity degree from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Pastoral Ministry, and am pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree in Biblical Spirituality from the same institution.
Strong influences on my life, thinking, and ministry include the Puritans, the Dutch Further Reformation, the Welsh Calvinistic Methodists, and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Individuals who have especially influenced me include Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Tom Nettles, Don Whitney, Jim Hamilton, James White, Paul Washer, and Voddie Baucham. I strongly commends their books, sermons, and ministry to everyone.
When I am not preaching, preparing to preach, or engaged in some other area of ministry I greatly enjoys spending time with my wife, reading anything I can get my hands on, exercising, and attempting to cultivate a more enjoyable accent. I have been fairly successful at the first three, and have been failing miserably in the fourth.
