Our Church family is thrilled to announce that Pastor Nathan Gast has accepted the call to become the next senior pastor at Urbandale Baptist Church. Pastor Gast is a graduate of FBBC, and has been the senior pastor at Fair Haven Baptist Church in Kansas City, KS since 2005. Pastor Gast was ordained in 2009. Although Nathan grew up in several different towns, he claims his deepest childhood roots were in Fort Dodge IA.
Nathan is married to Shanna, who hails from Ottumwa IA. They have two daughters: Bethany, age 4; and Lily, age 2. The Gasts will be starting their ministry at Urbandale Baptist Church in October of this year.
The Gasts enjoy spending time together as a family, reading, writing, hiking, camping, and blogging. The church is eagerly looking forward to having the Gasts minister with us.
