Hi I'm Nate

I'm a Mormon. I'm a Husband. I'm a Father. I'm a Musician. I'm a Fitness Guy.

About Me

I am a family man. I work as a Personal Trainer while also creating and performing with my band Mayan Fox. The best thing about my band is that I get to perform with my wife. I love sport including rugby, cricket, weight-lifting, squash and much more. I was born in New Zealand before living with my family throughout the world in such places as Hawaii, New Orleans, Tonga, Fiji, Utah, Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane. I served a mission for the Church in North Sydney, Australia. I married a half Fijian half Nicaraguan wife and together we have 3 children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. Even if I had no testimony, I know of no better way to raise a family then in harmony with the great principles found within the Church.

How I live my faith

When I share my talents I am sharing the Gospel whether it is via wholesome lyricism in my music or helping people to live healthier lives in my work as a trainer. My calling or 'appointment' in church is to teach. I enjoy teaching and believe it is a gift of God to be able to do so effectively.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Nate
YES! Visitors are more than welcome to attend a Mormon service. The first hour of a Mormon Sunday service concentrates on the taking of the sacrament which emulates the last supper of Christ. It is here that we get an opportunity to renew the promises that we made when we were baptised. We reconfirm our resolve to follow our Saviour Jesus Christ. There are generally a couple of speakers also. As we don't have 1 preacher, it is the various members of the Church who get invited to speak on assigned topics. The next 2 hours are broken up in to 2 generally interactive classes where we can study and learn together more about the doctrines of the Gospel. Which class you go to depends on a few factors including age, understanding etc. Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?
