Pastor Nate Morris loves to teach the Word of God and to encourage believers to press-in to deeper relationships with God and each other. His life goal in ministry is to be able to say, with Paul the Apostle, “I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God” (Acts 20:27)

Pastor Nate grew up in Vail, CO and committed his life to the Lord when he was just seven years old. However, when he reached High School, Nate walked away from God, and got involved in things he shouldn’t have been involved with. In his junior year, a faithful woman from a local church asked the church’s youth pastor to lead a Bible study for her troublemaker kids and their friends (including Nate). Nate remembers sitting in that study and hearing the Word of God taught in a simple, clear manner, and his life has never been the same. It spoke to his heart in a big way, and he turned his life back over to the Lord, and has been walking with Him ever since.

Nate has served in ministry in various capacities over the years as a youth leader, worship leader, assistant pastor, and then as a church planter, as he and his wife planted Calvary Belmar in Lakewood Colorado in 2010. God’s most recent call on Pastor Nate’s life has been to move back to the Vail Valley, where he grew up, to lead Calvary Chapel Vail Valley as the church’s Senior Pastor.

Nate and Jen have been married since 2002 and have three children, Caleb, Zoe & Josiah. Nate likes to ski, snowboard, hike, camp, fish – pretty much anything outdoors. His favorite book in the Bible is the book of Philippians, because it is such an applicable book to day-to-day life, struggles, hardships, and having the Joy of the Lord in the face of incredible opposition.

His favorite scripture is 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

 “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.”
