Pastor & Staff

Nathan Finsel

Senior Minister

Nathan Finsel felt God’s calling into ministry at the early age of 16. He quickly became active in ministry at his home church, where he served as a youth leader in the Youth Group and as Youth Representative.  After graduating from high school, he attended Pfeiffer University and majored in Youth Ministry, Christian Education, and Religion.  While attending Pfeiffer, he was active in campus ministries and even served as Vice President of Religious Life Council.  He also pursued his passion for youth ministry at New London UMC as their Youth Minister.  It was during these years that he met his wife and helper in ministry, Jessica Finsel.  

Nathan continued his education at Hood Theological Seminary. While going to seminary, Nathan found his first appointment at Memorial UMC in Monroe, NC.  He led that congregation faithfully for two years while finishing his degree and then was appointed to the small mountain town of Murphy, where he served a two-point charge. More recently, Nathan served at Trinity UMC in Kannapolis as the Associate Minister of the Youth and Family Ministries, where he served faithfully, as God used him to help grow the hearts and minds of the youth of the community.

“I have always had a great passion for youth and families.  I love sharing my faith and doing life together with people as we explore what God has in store for us all.”
In July of 2020, Nathan was appointed to Fair View UMC to serve as our Senior Pastor.  

“God is always active and alive in those that seek him.  I pray that as we seek God together, we may see the transformational power of God in our own lives and the lives of those around us.”

While pursuing the ministry, Nathan and his wife have had four wonderful children and work daily to pass on their love for God to them.  Nathan has a passion for God and a deep desire to share his faith with all people no matter where they are in their journey of faith.
