Nate Porter

>> Colead Pastor! <<

Newstart Church is excited to announce the election of Nate Porter (34) as Copastor (beginning June 1, 2022)! Nate is now the 2nd lead pastor since the church's founding in 2001. Nate Porter and Greg McNichols will provide multi-generational co-leadership as the church grows rapidly and positively impacts the surrounding counties.

Nate Porter said, "I look forward to helping lead our church into greater community impact through our varied, outward-facing ministries. We want to help more people benefit from our Marriage, Youth, Children, Sports, and compassionate ministries. But, most importantly, I am excited to continue the mission of sharing the Good News of a new start in Jesus to anyone seeking."

Nate has served at Newstart since 2015 as an assistant pastor in various ministries. Nate and his beautiful wife, Kristen, have been married since 2010 and have three young boys - Cole, Gage, and Brody. Kristen and Nate are currently foster parents and reside in the city of Delaware. Nate enjoys coaching his kid's soccer & baseball teams and loves getting involved in his community!
