Nathanael and his wife Colleen came to pastor Crossroads in August of 2013. Nate graduated from the University of the Western Ontario with a degree in English Literature and received his pastoral training from Emmanuel Bible College. He spent five years in youth ministry before participating in a two year apprenticeship program at West London Alliance church under the tutelage of Rev. Mike Wilkins.
Nate loves to teach the word of God and has been influenced by the writings of theologians Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, John Owen and Thomas Watson. His passion is to see God’s people take their responsibility to study scripture, to make disciples and to serve others seriously. He spends most of his free time participating in sports and "hanging out with dead guys" (which is his way of saying reading Puritan authors).
Pennie our Administrator, joined the Crossroads' staff in 2009 after retiring from 25+ years with Canada Post. She and husband, Graham, have attended Crossroads since 2001 and have been involved in worship ministry for the majority of that time. In their spare time, weather permitting, you can find Pennie and Graham out on their motorcycles. Pennie also enjoys listening to "Third Day" and reading Max Lucado offerings. They have 3 children, 3 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. They live in Thamesford with their dog "Gryphon".
