We are thrilled to announce that Nate Richardson will be joining the staff team at Bethel as our new Director of Worship & Communications!

Nate is originally from Washington D.C. and attended Liberty University for his undergraduate studies and seminary. During this time Nate met the love of his life and partner in ministry, Natalie. The two were married in December 2011 and began ministry at Cedarview Alliance Church in Ottawa, where Nate served as the Worship Arts and Young Adult Ministry Director for four years. Since 2015, Nate has served on staff at Compass Community Church as the Director Ministry Development and He is now excited to transition into the role of Director of Worship and Communications at Bethel. 

Nate has a great passion to see people engage and connect in authentic worship and loves to encourage people to pursue deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. His heart is to see people worship the Lord, not just on Sunday morning, but living everyday as an act of worship. Along with music, Nate also enjoys using video and graphic design and other media, to create meaningful content and capture stories that inspire people. 

For fun, Nate enjoys learning new instruments and gear, playing sports, watching super hero movies, and spending time with his family and friends. Nate and Natalie have 2 beautiful girls, Eden who is 3 and Layla who is 1.  

Nate and the family are excited to join the team at Bethel starting on April 10, 2018!
