Meet the Scholls
Nathan Scholl was born and raised in Razorback country, a.k.a. Little Rock, Arkansas. He graduated from high school in 1995 and then attended Wheaton College in Chicago, IL. He then crunched some numbers and crafted some pie charts and graduated from Wheaton with a Business/Economics degree. But God had a fresh new path for Nathan after graduation. He worked first as a youth minister in his hometown for two years and then packed his bags for Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC.
While in seminary he met his beautiful and gifted wife, Christi. Upon graduation from seminary Nathan and Christi moved to Durham, NC and started ministry to middle and high school students at The Church of the Good Shepherd. They were in Durham for almost 7 years and during that time they started a family, two boys to be exact, Hunter and Andrew. They then moved to Lexington, VA in April of 2012 to serve at Grace Presbyterian Church and soon after added a little girl to their family, Linden Caroline. Nathan served as the assistant minister at Grace Presbyterian overseeing Men’s ministry, student ministry, assimilation and small groups. He also preached regularly and discipled young adults in the church. In July 2015 Nathan and Christi will be starting an exciting new chapter in ministry as they begin their new call to church plant with the ARP in Charlottesville, VA.
What is the Vision for Nathan's Internship?
Charlottesville is a thriving college town in central Virginia and it has been blessed with many things: wealth, education, a rich history and a great mountain location. It is thus also a growing and vibrant place to live. People come from all over the nation and the world to live and work and go to school in this city. Yet there is a distinct need for gospel ministry to those same people. Often, material blessings and high education levels tend to push people away from God rather than toward Him. They feel self-reliant and self-made, and thus have trouble seeing their deep need for Jesus Christ and the true salvation he brings. You can see this truth in the statistics: in the state of VA outside of the DC suburbs, there are two locations with the lowest number of people experiencing the grace of God and ministry of the Word in a Bible believing, gospel centered church; Blacksburg (home of Virginia Tech) and Charlottesville (home of the University of Virginia). We are thus ready and excited to bring the good news of the gospel to this blessed but broken city.

Please pray for God to send us faithful and Godly leaders to help populate a core team.
