Rev. Nate Whittaker

Pastor of Mount Calvary Lutheran Church

Nathan grew up in California for most of his childhood, but ventured to Michigan for his high school years. He graduated from The Ohio State University in 2006 with a Bachelor in History. He continued his education by going to Concordia Seminary to receive his Masters of Divinity in 2013. He continued at Concordia Seminary to pursue a doctorate in theology, which he is still working towards.

Nate has been married to his wonderful wife, Tricia, for 10 years. She supports his service to the church and Nate could not do it without her. They have two preschoolers, who keep them constantly busy yet grateful.

Although this is Nate’s first call, he is enthusiastic about the prospects for Mount Calvary and its future in the community of South Fort Wayne. He is excited to see how God is moving with and through the people of Mount Calvary as they awaken to the vision God is placing on their hearts. He’s even more excited to see how the people of God will teach him to be more dependent upon Jesus for all he needs.
