After graduating from Columbia High School in 2003, Nathan attended Mississippi College in Clinton, MS, where he majored in Christian Studies and history. During college, Nathan became involved in several local ministries, including an inner city Bible club and a college ministry. During his first two summers, he served as a counselor at Central Hills Baptist Retreat in Kosciusko, MS. In 2005, Nathan was called as Minister to Students at Beulah Memorial Baptist Church, where he served until moving to New Orleans to attend Seminary in August 2008. During his master’s studies, Nathan concentrated on Biblical Languages and Interpretation.  He graduated with his M.A. in May 2010 and is currently completing his doctorate in New Testament and Greek at NOBTS.  As a minister, Nathan’s greatest passion is to promote discipleship, fellowship, and evangelism through building relationships.  In his free time, he enjoys reading, writing, travelling, guitar, and being with friends and family.

 


Youth Pastor
Josh Gosa
Email

Josh is from Amory, MS where he attended First Baptist Church. After graduating from Amory High School in 2005 and never really establishing a relationship with Jesus, he fell away from the church and into a lifestyle that was far from Christ. In 2008, Josh committed his life to Christ and left the old behind. He transferred from Itawamba Community College to Mississippi State University in 2008. While there, he became an active part of Calvary Baptist Church and, eventually, became a youth intern. It was during this internship, that he felt God calling him into student ministry. While at Calvary, Josh lead worship for the youth and their college ministry, CW215. After graduating from MSU in August 2011, he became the youth minister at First Baptist Church in Maben, MS, where he served for two years before being called to Folsom in May of 2013. It was during those couple of years that God really laid on his heart that student ministry was definitely where He wanted him. Today, students are bombarded with ideas and images that are far from Christ, and Josh's passions are to build relationships, minister to students, and show them that there is a way better route, through Jesus, than what the world shows us. Josh and his wife, Olivia, were married June 29, 2013 and share the same heart for students. Josh attends New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in New Orleans, LA where he's working towards a Master's of Divinity in Christian Education. In his free time, Josh likes playing guitar, watching movies, being outside, and playing with his dogs, Ace and Shadow.
