Pastor Nathan Eshelman
Nathan Eshelman was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania and became a Christian at the age of 17. As he grew in his understanding of God’s Word he desired to pursue a more formal theological education, which led him to Grand Rapids, MI. He met his wife, Lydia at Calvin College. Following college, they helped to plant the First Reformed Presbyterian Church in Grand Rapids, MI.
He attended Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, where he completed his Master of Divinity Degree under the oversight of the Great Lakes-Gulf Presbytery of the RPCNA. Nathan also holds a doctorate degree from the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Pittsburgh, PA and a Master of Theology degree in post-Reformation historical theology from Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. He is co-host on the podcast The Jerusalem Chamber, which is a paragraph by paragraph discussion of the Westminster Confession of Faith. Nathan also is a contributing author to Gentle Reformation.
Nathan has a heart for confessionalism; the ordinary means of grace; pastoral ministry; experiential and expository preaching; as well as church planting and missions. Nathan served as pastor of the Los Angeles Reformed Presbyterian Church from 2009-2021. He was called to serve the Orlando congregation in 2021.
Nathan is married to Lydia and they have five children.
