Pastor Nathan Massey was born in North Carolina. He was saved at the age of five after a children's class, and following his salvation, he answered God's call to preach at the age of seventeen. He came to minister at Beacon Baptist Church in November of 2013, having earned a B. A. degree in Bible and Pastoral Training.

He and his wife, Jennifer, have two sons and two daughters. As a family they seek to honor the Lord as they minister for Him in the Phoenix area. Pastor Nathan is truly a man with a heart for God, for people and for evangelizing the unsaved. People are the work of God, and Pastor Nathan and his wife truly care for the people of Beacon Baptist Church.  

On March 2, 2014, Pastor Nathan Massey, along with his wife Jennifer, held the first services of Beacon Baptist Church in the Washington High School in Phoenix.  Both Pastor Massey and his wife have a burning passion from God to declare the gospel to every creature and direct people to the grace of God for spiritual growth.
