Hello. My name Is Nathan and I am the lead pastor at Greenville Alliance Church. I want to welcome you to our website and encourage you to look around and learn about us! Let me tell you a little about me. I’m married to Joyce, a woman whom love and respect. We’ve been married for over 29years. We have two adult children that we are very proud of and we are looking forward to the years ahead.
Allow me to share a little about my educational background. I am a graduate of Nyack College and Asbury Seminary and have also graduated from the Arrow Leadership program. I would say I am a life-time learner and I enjoy growing. I’ve also had a number of churches from Bethel, Maine of 3000 people to Cherry Hill, New Jersey with well over 70,000 people in the township alone. So we’ve had some real experiences that have offered lots of opportunity to get to know people from many different backgrounds. We are excited to be in Greenville, not the smallest and not the largest areas, but a great place to be!
I believe God longs to do so much in our community, not just in the spiritual areas, but in every aspect. Christ has a plan and purpose for each and every person. Regardless of background or upbringing there’s room for you. My goal for the ministry at Greenville is to bring people into a personal relationship with Christ, but it doesn’t end there. I believe He also gave us a new and exciting way to live. Salvation isn’t simply a go to heaven thing, it’s a how to live in the here and now type of thing. I believe having a relationship with Christ can impact a person’s whole world, singleness, marriage, kids, relationships and even work. The whole community can be transformed! So I would welcome you to come, belong, believe and become at Greenville Alliance Church! I would enjoy getting to know you and look forward to meeting you soon.
Pastor Nathan B. Seckinger
My goal of student ministry is to build foundations in students’ lives to enable them to be lifelong disciples of Christ. Then they can grab hold of Paul’s words to Timothy, “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity” (1 Timothy 4:12, NLT). Students have the power, through the Holy Spirit, inside themselves to make a difference in their world now, making it a place where God’s will is accomplished.
I rely on God to direct and give wisdom while ministering to students, without Him nothing can be accomplished of lasting value. He has guided my life along a path that has been difficult at times but one that has drawn me closer and closer to him. He currently has guided me to Liberty University to further my education that will result in becoming a pastor and allow me to be more effective in ministry.
Trish, my wife of 17 years, works closely with me ministering to students. She is an amazing gift from God, I am lucky to have her by my side. Together we have two beautiful daughters, Alyssa and Alaina. Alyssa is in High School and Alaina will be entering Jr. High in a year. They both are blessings and make me smile every day.
I hope to someday meeting you in person. Until then I will be;
Striving for what lies ahead,
Hello! My name is Michelle and I have been blessed to be the Children’s Ministry Director at the Greenville Alliance Church for 15 years.
At the Greenville Alliance Church, my goal is to prepare our children for the next phase of their life, the teen years, as well as ready them for future ministry and a life of faith. I believe in children learning now what it means to be a Christian minister in their own unique worlds. Each of us is a minister. The Lord has given us each our own individual scope of influence and our own ministry. Regardless of our age or circumstance, we are all called to serve. I want to see our children grow into impactful beings, making their time here a springboard to a successful and happy life.
Personally, I am blessed to have the love of my life, Matt, 5 amazing children between us (Seth, Lisbeth, Noah, Sarah and John) a precious future daughter-in-law, Rachel and a cute, dog, Fritzel, who keep me hopping and happy. I enjoy crocheting, cycling, hiking, walking, reading and cooking. I also very much cherish time with my family and friends. We enjoy playing board games a lot!! My personal children have added much to my ministry, assisting in teaching and programming a great deal. More than that, though, having children and loving them has fueled my passion for ministering to my “collective” children at church.
My hope is that your child will come and be a part of our family here at the Greenville Alliance Church.
I am a Christian worship leader, choir director, writer, arranger, and musician. I am the father of four wonderful and special children and husband to one amazing woman with whom I have been leading worship for over a decade!. Leading worship is my passion, and I believe God has gifted me for that very purpose. I enjoy listening to and playing all types of Christian music, including traditional hymns, instrumental music, newer music, band-driven worship music, and classical. I have always maintained a blended worship style, combining precious treasures from the past with exciting new worship music and styles to create an atmosphere of Spirit-Led, God-Honoring, Life-Changing worship of our God and King!
Personally, I love to be outside in God’s country. I prefer the country to the city and tend to be a bit introspective when I am alone in the woods. I walk and talk to God, and that is where much of my inspiration comes from. I enjoy a good cup of coffee (Dunkin Donuts, of course!), and sitting and talking with people about God, music, or anything that encourages and inspires the soul!
Ten years ago I received a major head injury while officiating an ice hockey game which changed my life forever. I am disabled as a result of that injury, but God has blessed me with enough strength to continue to serve him through music in many ways. I have been employed throughout my disability, overcoming odds that say I am not supposed to be doing what I am doing – but God is the Great Achiever!!! I give Him all the Glory and Honor and credit for all I am able to do. My injury DOES NOT DEFINE ME, but my faith in Christ does.
Music is how I talk to God. I am closest to Him when I am singing, playing, listening, or even near music! I do believe music can touch a person’s heart and soul where many other forms of worship cannot. I also believe there is no one way to worship, but many ways that reflect the many individuals that God has beautifully created to be unique! We are each unique, so our worship to our Creator should be the same!
1 Corinthians 12:4-6 – “There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.”
There is joy in the house of the Lord when we worship in Spirit and in Truth! The worship team at Greenville Alliance Church is made up of a team of people with all levels of ability and involvement – if you believe God is calling you to help lead worship – I would love to talk with you and help you discern God’s calling in your life!
