Nathan Potts, Pastor
Nathan has recently joined the Insight for Living Australia (IFLA) team as head of pastoral ministries. Nathan is married to his lovely wife, Julie, and they have three children, Libby, Eli and Emma. The Potts family are proud New Zealanders by birth but have lived in Australia and the United States for the past 11 years. Nathan and Julie now reside in Melbourne, Australia.
After Nathan spent 21 years within the corporate world and held many roles in lay leadership, the Lord convicted him to enter into full-time Christian work. Nathan felt a burden to accurately proclaim and apply biblical truth to the churches of Australia. Nathan graduated in 1998 with an MBA from Massey University in New Zealand. However, to be effective in ministry, he needed theological training.
To prepare for ministry Nathan and Julie, together with their children, moved to Portland, Oregon, in 2008 for theological training at Multnomah Biblical Seminary. Nathan completed a MDIV in 2011. At Multnomah Nathan served on the graduate leadership team and in 2010 was president of this team.
In January 2012 the Potts family arrived back in Melbourne and started working in a part-time capacity as a pastor for Canterbury Gardens Community Church. This role continues, along with the 3 days per week with IFLA. Nathan has a passion to see the church equipped and mobilized to share the love of Christ to every part of the community. He has a heart for teaching and equipping, with a focus on biblical parenting.
