Hi! My name is Jared Natsis, and I've been pastor at Rock of Ages since July 2019. I was born in Saline, Michigan into a pastor's family. I called Michigan "home" until I left for school in Minnesota and Wisconsin, and now I'm happy to have finally landed in a home as wonderful as Tennessee! My wife Alisa, our daughter Cordelia, and I live in Hendersonville.
I graduated high school in 2011 from Michigan Lutheran Seminary in Saginaw, MI, a preparatory school with a focus on encouraging its students to continue on in public ministry. I then moved on to Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN, a vocational school for the training of pastors and teachers. I finished my pastoral training at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI, which included a year of ministry understudy at Grace Lutheran Church in Falls Church, VA. Upon graduation I received a Masters of Divinity degree and my first call into ministry: to serve here, at Rock of Ages in Nashville.
If you're reading this page, I would love to meet you and tell you more about our church and, more importantly, about our Savior! If you'd like to contact me you can e-mail me or call/text me at 615-865-2228. I look forward to speaking with you!
