A native of Andalusia, AL, Nathan grew up in Alabama and Georgia as the son of a minister. He has served in churches in FL and TN prior to moving to the Birmingham area in 2010. He is married way out of his league to Kameron, his girlfriend from high school who works as a speech pathologist and oral deaf educator. They have three spirited children, J. Henry (14), Amelia (11) and Hanna (10). When not at work he can be found herding children, fishing, reading and building things.

Nathan is fulfilled when helping people find the peace and purpose that only comes through Jesus Christ. He says, "Jesus Christ of Nazareth was crucified, dead and buried and God raised him the dead. Through those historical events, God has begun the revolution to make all things new - and that starts with the human heart and echoes into all of our shared life in this world. Every day I get the chance to help others experience that hope, and I can't imagine being a part of anything better than that."

Nathan Carden became the lead pastor of the Church at Ross Bridge in July 2017.
