Nathan Oates Part 1

We speak with Pastor Nathan Oates of Emmaus Church Community in Lincoln, California, about his changing faith.  Nathan and Mark grew up together in the same Nazarene youth group.  Nathan shares his testimony and the account of his own journey from youth to his founding of the Emmaus Church Community in this first of two episodes.

You can join us on Facebook in the First Non-Denominational Church of the Relatively Elect.  Please comment there about your own changing faith.
