Announcing DSC’s New Minister to Youth and Families, Nathan Sherman

2012 | by Trent Hunter | Category: Announcement

It is with joy that we announce that Nathan Sherman has accepted our offer to serve DSC as our new Minister to Youth and Families!

This great news comes at the end of an almost six month search process. During that time, DSC’s elders have been praying about this transition, reviewing resumes, and discussing the needs of the ministry. In April, they extended an invitation for Nathan to visit DSC for a candidating weekend. Over the weekend of May 6, Nathan visited with his wife, Marcie, to meet with the elders, staff, and the youth ministry leadership, and to teach the students during the Paradox hour on Sunday.

In 2010, Nathan received his Master of Divinity in Theology from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and has been serving since that time on staff at Providence, an Acts 29 church in Austin, TX.

Here’s is a paragraph from Nathan’s resume:

“Being rich in mercy and kindness, God called me into belief in the gospel when I was in the 8th grade. For the near entirety of my life I have been blessed to have more mature believers who were and are concerned with my personal growth and discipleship. Through their model, discipleship by transferring both truth and life has always been an imperative for me as Christ has mandated. In 2006, I married my precious wife, Marcie. Marcie has a Master’s of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Southern Seminary. She is an extremely competent and compassionate counselor and discipler of women. We have two boys, Owen and Caleb, and we are expecting our third son, Micah, in May 2012. Through our experience in churches, seminary, and now as parents, we have developed an increased concern for ministering to families as a whole through the gospel.”

As you might expect, there is one part of that paragraph that is already obsolete: Micah Henry Sherman was born on Wednesday morning, weighing in at 9 lbs. 4 oz.! He is healthy and the family is coming home from the hospital today.

Please be in prayer for this family in the midst of their many transitions. If you would like to welcome Nathan, Marcie, Owen, Caleb, and Micah, please email them at We look forward to being joined by the Shermans at the end of June.

Until that time, we will enjoy our time with Greg and Caitelen Schneeberger, who have lived with and served among us so faithfully for so many years. Greg and his family will be moving to San Diego in July where Greg will be a church planting intern at North Coast Presbyterian Church. Learn more about their future ministry here, and look out for opportunities to serve and celebrate this precious family in their transition.
