BACK STORY encore

Nathan Dannison

Senior Pastor, First Congregational Church

First, at just 34, he’s the senior pastor at Kalamazoo’s First Congregational Church. He’s also a seventh-generation Michigander who hunts and fishes, plays fiddle in the local Americana band Who Hit John?, restores old houses, wants to solve homelessness and was just tapped to fill the single at-large seat on Kalamazoo’s Foundation for Excellence board of directors, which oversees the $70 million endowment fund established to stabilize the city’s budget, reduce property taxes and pay for community projects. Oh, yes, and he’s a husband and father who runs around after a toddler. (continued on page 45) 46 | Encore MARCH 2018
