  • Nate & ROCHELLE Harmon

    Lead Pastor

    Nate grew up right here in Louisville, Ohio. He earned his Bachelor's degree in ministry from Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri.  Nate met his wife Rochelle while in college and they married before his senior year.   After graduating, Nate and Rochelle served in Worship Ministry and Executive Pastor roles for 25 years and most recently as the Vice President of student affairs at his alma mater, Baptist Bible College. In 2021, Nate and Rochelle felt God leading them to full-time ministry once again in the role of Lead Pastor.  God impressed upon their hearts to return to Louisville where his grandfather pastored and his father is currently pastoring.  Nate as a 3rd generation Pastor, is excited to continue the legacy of his heritage and we are blessed to have him as our leader.

    Rochelle is a native of Cincinnati, Ohio.  She attended Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri earning an early childhood degree.  She met her husband, Nate while in college and they were married before his senior year.  

    Nate and Rochelle have worked together in full-time ministry for over 25 years. Rochelle has led worship and women's ministries within her role as Pastor's wife.  She is excited to be on staff at Louisville Baptist and looks forward to seeing God's kingdom grow in Stark County.
