Recently, Nathan Shires was installed as the new district pastor of the Healdsburg and Cloverdale churches.
Formerly a district pastor from Oklahoma, Shires shared, “My wife and I weren’t necessarily looking to move, but the Lord had other plans. He fulfilled all five of the criteria we had laid before Him. We took that as our answer to come to California.”
Shires brings community-focused energy to his district, as he explains, “Revitalizing ourselves and our churches in a missional style is key to connecting our communities. I am excited to be in the Healdsburg, Cloverdale area and blessed with willing and eager churches to do God’s work.”
Nathan shares his life with Gurpreet, his wife of five years. She is a nurse practitioner for Adventist Health who grew up in San Jose.
