My wife Annette & I have been Senior Pastors here at Nations for over eight years now. Our desire is to build a church that is a safe environment for people to find life in Christ and grow in that life. We believe in the church. It is God’s answer for a broken world. We love God’s people and our greatest joy is seeing them grow to become all God created them to be. We are also passionate about training and releasing the next generation of leaders and ministries into the Kingdom of God.

Andrew & Heidi DavidsonNations Mosgiel Pastors
My husband and I are the Senior Pastors of Nations Mosgiel Church which has been running since June, 2016. We didn’t know how much we would love the people we pastor until now; God has given us a love and care for people that we wouldn’t have if we weren’t in this role. We have enjoyed every minute of the new church plant. New experiences and challenges have strengthened us and helped us to build a wonderful team. With God’s guidance, we are excited about the future and what God has in store for us as a church.
