    Nathan ThorntonPastor

    Pastor Nathan Thornton joined the staff as the Senior Assistant Pastor in 2005. He was elected by the Board of Trustees and the Church Body as Pastor of Living Way in May 2010. Pastor Thornton’s early ministry enjoyed tremendous success as an evangelist, traveling full time as a member of the Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ Evangelistic Department. His dymanic preaching and powerful overcoming testimony have inspired many to muster the courage to walk out of their personal prisons and into the new life Christ promised they could have. He has a passion for souls and for revival. Living Way is blessed to have a Pastor with such vision and dedication. Pastor Thornton and his wife Shelley have two sons, Layton and Miles, and a daughter, Honor.
