Welcome Nathan Gross – Contemporary Worship Leader!
Nathan was born and raised in the Yakima Valley, calling Selah home for most of his life. He started writing songs at a young age, and has been leading worship since he was 16 years old, with Psalms 96 and 150 being instrumental Biblical passages in his development as a leader. Nathan married his high school sweetheart, Sara, and together, they attended Eastern Washington University, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in music. His ever-growing love and knowledge of music allows him to use his God-given talents to help lead others to times of heartfelt praise, intimate worship, and awe and wonder of our Creator.
In addition to leading worship at Grace, he works, with his wife, in the music program at the Selah school district, where their three amazing children are also students. Nathan’s family often accompanies him onstage to help with leading worship. He’s an avid local sports fan, which is especially evident in the football season, as you’ll probably see him wearing a shirt that reads, “God first, Family, then the Seahawks.”
Nathan lives to worship, and would love to see you Belong, Believe, Become and Bless with us at Grace of Christ!
