Nathan has been a member at the Haw Branch Church of Christ since 2011. Soon after joining, he became actively involved in the worship ministry. He has held his current position here as part-time worship leader since February 2012. Nathan was born and raised here in eastern North Carolina. He graduated from East Carolina University with a PhD in Biomedical Physics and is employed full-time at ECU Health as a Health Physicist. Nathan has been involved in music ministry for most of his life. He has been singing and playing gospel music since he was nine years old. He formerly owned and managed a part-time Gospel group called the “Carlson Trio” and spread the good news through song to eastern North Carolina, Virginia and the NC mountains. In addition to his inherent love for music, Nathan enjoys spending time with his beautiful family, Wife, Ashley, and children Noah, Lucas and Oaklyn Kate. He also loves the outdoors, whether it is camping, fishing or kayaking. One of Nathan’s favorite bible verses is Ephesians 5:19 which says “Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,”
