Nathan gained a deep love and respect for cultures and peoples of the world. Dr. Smith has a passion for the rigorous exposition of the scriptures so that God might be known, His Grace in Christ be realized, and the Christian be moved to an obedient, sacrificial mission. Nathan frequently says, "No matter who you are or where you are from, we are a church of broken people all in need of God's grace."

Nathan and Jessica, his wife, have three children, Caden, Lydia, and Jason.
