Commissioning at Friendship Church

Yesterday, we had the privilege of being commissioned at Friendship Church in Prior Lake, MN. Nate grew up in this church, and it is very special for us to be sent to Austria with their support and prayers going with us. God used many individuals at the church to help shepherd Nate and lead him towards cross-cultural, international ministry.

Here is a brief video from the commissioning, where we share our vision for ministry and Nate talks about how the community at Friendship nurtured and discipled him. Enjoy!


  1. Hello Nate and Bethany, for family reasons I feel sad your going, but at the same time I know you have been called to do this. Mary and I love you both very much and wish the best for you both. Nate, I love your hugs when you greet us, the extanded family, please pass that passion on to folks you meet in Austria and spread the good news of Christ our Savior. Frank and Mary Shemonek in Waseca,MN

  2. Thank you, Frank and Mary! Your prayers and encouragement mean a lot to us. Blessings to you both!
