The Lord uses His church to spread the good news of Jesus to the world (Matt 28:19-20), and to build up and strengthen those who are in the church (Eph 4:15). The Lord has blessed His people with many individuals who edify and instruct (Eph 4:11-12). In Scripture, the Lord uses people like the prophets or the apostles to spread His truth. Within our congregation, we have many who are able to preach from the pulpit, teach Bible classes for various ages, or hold spiritual discussions. At Eastview, Bryan Nash fills the special role of the primary minister.
Bryan was brought on as the minister at Eastview Church of Christ at the beginning of 2019, and has been in full-time ministry for about 12 years total. He lives in Salem with his wife Alyse and his sons, CJ and Easton.
"The church at Eastview is a spiritual family. My goal is to help equip the church family "for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ" (Eph 4:12). I try to teach the Bible in a way which equips and builds up. But we are also equipped and built up in other ways. We are encouraged by spending time with one another and forming relationships. I hope that my work helps us to have "love for one another" (John 13:35), so that others will want to be followers of Jesus, too."
