Cane Bay
Church Plant

We are laying the groundwork this year to launch a new church in Cane Bay early in 2021. In mid-2020, we will be starting a Bible study in our home. If you might be interested in learning more, please let us know with the “Contact” button at the top of this page. We would love to meet up for coffee or a meal!

THE Vision

The Pastor

Nathan Francis

Nathan grew up in Richmond, VA. He graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.A. in Graphic Design in 2003. During college, he served with the Navigators campus ministry and spent two summers in Japan. After college, he stayed in Blacksburg, VA and worked a dozen years in the Information Technology field in design, support, and project management. 
During those years, his desire grew for pastoral ministry. Subsequently, he moved his family to Charlotte, NC to attend Reformed Theological Seminary where he graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 2017. They moved to Asheville, NC to become a Pastor of Discipleship and Outreach. They now live in Cane Bay laying the groundwork for this new church. 
He met his beautiful wife, Lori, in Blacksburg. He and his wife, Lori, have four daughters; ages 18, 13, 11, and 5. Nathan loves being outside and Lori’s happy place is the beach. They are excited to be living in the Lowcountry! Nathan enjoys cycling, building things, frisbee, campfires, and anything with his girls.


The Need

The Cane Bay community is 45 minutes northwest of Charleston, SC. Cane Bay continues to experience explosive population growth as companies continue to build and expand facilities in the greater Charleston area (see map below). 4,000 of the 10,000 homes in Cane Bay have been built as well as its own schools, YMCA, shopping center and more. Our heart’s desire is to plant a PCA church in this community in order to serve these families practically and spiritually & gather to worship. We are laying the groundwork in 2020 in order to launch worship early in 2021.
