Pursuing my Calling

Hey, everybody! Welcome to my profile! My name is Nathan Bragg. I’m from Piedmont, Alabama, USA. Currently, I study at the Christian Leaders Institute as I am pursuing my ministry calling (Learn more about online free Bible courses, Click Here).

I am 32 years old, married to my beautiful wife, Alyssa, for seven years. We have two beautiful children: a ten-year-old son and a two-year-old daughter. My kids are my life. I am an eight-year veteran of the United States Air Force. I am also an entrepreneur that currently owns a landscaping business and is a coach.

My Journey

I was born and raised in the small city of Piedmont, Alabama. At seventeen, I enlisted in the United States Air Force as a firefighter/EMT. I served six years in the Active Duty Air Force and two years in the Air National Guard.

Upon separation from the military, I moved back home to Piedmont. A few years later is when I met my wife. I happened to be going through the worst point of my life. At that time, she invited me to the church, which was also in the middle of a revival. I have been there since. It was the turning point in my life. God was preparing me for my walk with Him.

For Such a Time: Pursuing My Calling

It’s been a long seven years, but it’s been worth it. Proverbs 20 says that the Lord ordains our steps. These seven long years were a period where I went through almost every emotion a person can experience. I didn’t know it at the time, but God was preparing me for such a time as this. Thank you, Jesus!

I endured many things in my life. I saw my family torn apart, my dad on his death bed multiple times, my life and freedom almost stolen from me, a very bad marriage and divorce, and also the breaking of generational curses. However, this is what has set me up for where I am today, pursuing my calling and studying at the Christian Leaders Institute. I am no longer running… here I am, Lord! Send me! Holy Ghost Fire, rain down! Thank you, Jesus!
