Meet Pastor Nate Walther, my Spiritual Advisor

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

I am very thankful for my spiritual advisor, Pastor Nate Walther and his support staff (also known as his family).  Two years ago we switched churches and denominations from LCMS (Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod) to WELS (Wisconson Evengelical Lutheran Synod). The two churches are very similar in beliefs but the WELS is just slightly more sound on the word of God.

Pastor Walther is the son of a WELS pastor and has been raised in private WELS schools from first grade all the way through college and seminar school. I have never known a pastor of any denomination as well versed as Pastor Walther yet Nate is far from dry. Nate loves to hunt, ski, sports, and even brews his own beer. If I were to point out a flaw it could only be that he is a Packers fan but then again he did grow up in WI so I have to forgive him for that.

I, like many, have been a church "shopper" over my life time. I was raised EUB (if you know what that denomination is you are most likely as old as I am being they merged with another major denomination in the 60's) and I've been a member of the Presbyterian Church, United Methodist, several different Lutheran denominations, and even a Pentecostal church.

I have heard thousands of sermons and attended thousands of Bible studies but I've never know a spiritual leader who has the depth of understanding AND the kind, gentle personality that Pastor Walther exhibits.

Nothing is more important to me than my eternal destination. Little is more important that having a good spiritual guide. Pastor Nate Walther is my spiritual guide and I want to publicly give thanks for him.

Thank you also goes out to Debe Maxwell, CRS for her challenge to share with you that which we are thankful for during the 10 days prior to Thanksgiving day.

Hello Bob - finding the "right fit" is another sign that everyday thanksgiving makes it presence known.  When that happens it is no wonder that it is considered a gift.

Pastor Walther is the first Pastor I've had that I felt was truly on a plain above me Michael Jacobs and that is how it should be with a spiritual advisor. That is not saying that I have not added to his wisdom, I have, but he is so much more knowledgeable about biblical history and he is fluent in the ancient languages.

He is a good man Brian England and actually fun to be around... unlike many "egg head" type of people.

Bill Salvatore - YVP Blog there was a time where I'd be at Taco John's every Tuesday just as faithfully as I'm in church every Sunday but with so many good resturants out there it's hard to be a regular any more.

True on both accounts Wayne Martin .... however I wonder if he thinks that's a good thing? Maybe I'm a one of a kind pain in the ass.

Grace Lutheran went from a "Preaching Station" in the late 90's to an actual church body 8 years ago. The church was very lucky to get a young, wet hehind the ears minister and his wife to serve a mission church. That young man was Pastor Walther. He was the perfect fit then Debe Maxwell, CRS and he still is today.

Good morning Bob - the pastor makes a big different.  I chair our call committee for our current Lutheran pastor and I have to say he was a good unanimous choice.

My hats off to you Grant Schneider for taking on the challenge of being on a call committee. I have not been in that position but I know it would be a hard spot to be in.

Good morning, Bob... I was raised Missouri Synod Lutheran... and to this day if I'm in a Lutheran Church and it doesn't seem "like home." Where I'm  most at home is the Episcopal Church, which I've been attending for decades... liturgy very similar to what I grew up with in the Missouri Synod Lutheran church. At the end of the day, it's what makes you happy and your soul content.

Being fed and being content are important concerning matters of the soul Nina Hollander, Broker . The other thing I love about our church is everyone seems genuine and loving towards one another.

Thanks Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist . It was a surprise to my family when I told them I needed to move on as the church we had been at for two decades was not meeting my need to serve the Lord. This is where we are supposed to be NOW!
