Pastor Nathan Deatrick
In 2010, the Lord called Pastor Nathan Deatrick, along with his family, to start a brand new church in Polk County, North Carolina. They have been thrilled and humbled at how God has worked over the past nine years from the start of
Crossroads Baptist Church to the present time.
Pastor Deatrick is the son of a Baptist pastor. He accepted Christ as his Savior in 1980 during a revival meeting in Illinois and surrendered to God’s call to the Gospel ministry in 1992. After Bible College he served as assistant pastor with his Dad in northeast Missouri.
In 2003, he moved back to North Carolina and was the assistant pastor at a church in Shelby for seven years.
God has given Pastor Nathan a wonderful wife, Jenny, and together they have four children, Emalyn, Audrey, Judson and Elaina. Together they love to serve God and His people, and they are excited to have part in what God is doing at Crossroads Baptist Church.
Pastor Nathan’s desire is to make Christ preeminent through dynamic Bible preaching and faithful, genuine, and compassionate pastoral leadership.
Pastor Ron Caple
Pastor Caple accepted Christ as his Savior while serving in the United States Army. Upon retirement from the Army, Pastor Caple enrolled at Ambassador Baptist College in Lattimore, NC, and was ordained to the Gospel Ministry in 1998. He has served as the Pastor of Grace Baptist Church International in Italy, and as an Assistant to the Pastor at Grace Baptist Church in Landrum, SC.
Pastor Caple and his wife Patricia have six children and ten grandchildren. They both have a strong desire to serve and to equip the believers to grow in their relationship with the Lord.
Josh was saved by faith in Christ at a young age and was called by God into the ministry while attending a Christian summer camp. After graduating from Ambassador Baptist College in 2019, he immediately began serving on staff here at Crossroads.
Josh and Katie have one daughter, Allison, and are excited to serve the Lord together in various capacities at Crossroads, such as music and youth ministries.
The Pates are preparing to be church-planting missionaries in the Ivory Coast of West Africa.
