Pastor Nathan Mugaas

Pastor Nathan came to Zion in 2009 as the associate pastor.  Here at Zion he has helped develop a small group ministry (Zion LIFE Groups), works closely with the youth and confirmation programs, and shares regular pastoral duties (preaching and worship leading, visitation, funerals and weddings) with Pastor John, the Senior Pastor.

Pastor Nathan and his wife Annie have a young son, Theodore (Teddy) Paul Mugaas, who was born May 3rd, 2014.  Annie works as a Speech Language Pathologist at Washington and Bell Elementary Schools.  They love their family time together and both strive to make their schedules allow as much time together as possible.

Besides quality family time at home, Pastor Nathan also enjoys traveling, reading, movies, hunting, fishing, brewing beer, playing guitar, and walking with their dog Murray.






Pastor Nathan is also a Prepare/Enrich Facilitator Trainer.  If you would like to be trained to use the Prepare/Enrich program contact him for more information.
