Nathan Colestock

Assistant for Youth and Family Ministry

Envelope   Email Nathan

God mercifully called me from darkness to light in high school. Early in my college career he guided me to pursue vocational ministry. He's given me grace to earn a degree from Emmaus Bible College in Dubuque, IA and now I attend Bethlehem Seminary in Minneapolis. My lovely wife Maddie and I have one little girl. I love nothing more than to teach and equip God's people to love him with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. I also enjoy music, board games, hiking, reading, writing, and sunsets over the lake at our cabin.

Growing up in a musical home with strong spiritual influences on my life, I've always desired to understand and apply the connection between music and worship.  After graduating in Music Education at Northwestern, St. Paul, 

Craig and I started our family and raised our children in Elk River.  (As of today there are 16 family members, but we are growing quickly!)  In these years I was busy as a homeschool mom, but directed many children's musicals for the community. While attending Bethlehem Baptist, I led worship for the women's events, and participated on the worship team, developing my understanding of worship and the value of this ministry.  It is a joy to plan the services for Meadow Creek as we weekly gather to hear the Word of God preached, prayed and sung.

I was raised in a Christian home that was very active in our church. I made a personal decision for Christ during summer Bible camp when I was 12, and that decision would forever change me. I have developed over the years to have a heart for worship. Worship is a way of life and the result of our decision to exalt God above everything else. God is truly great and worthy of all praise! I have worked in the church office at MCC since 2001. My husband Tim and I have been married for 31 years and we love the North Shore, which is where Tim grew up. We have two grown children and are experiencing the joy of grandparenting!
