Meet the Ministers
Nate And Katie Miller met in Norman, Oklahoma, in the summer of 2014, at church camp. Katie began her Early Childhood Development degree at Oklahoma Christian in the Fall of 2017, and Nate started his Biblical Studies degree at Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver in January 2018. They got engaged on June 9th, 2018, and got married on December 21st of 2018. After getting married, Katie moved from Oklahoma to Denver and started taking classes through the Women’s Program at Bear Valley. After graduating from Bear Valley in December 2019, Nate became the full-time minister at the Wisconsin Avenue Church of Christ. Katie is continuing her degree in Early Childhood Development here in South Dakota. Nate and Katie love their cat Sister and watching food Network and HGTV. One of their favorite hobbies is playing card games with friends.
My name is Casey Paulin and my wife’s name is Emily. Emily and I have been married just over 1 year and have settled down in Florence, Alabama where I served as the part time youth minister for Stutt’s Road church of Christ. I was raised in Lakeland, Florida and grew up attending the South Florida Avenue church of Christ. I have been blessed greatly with a faithful family who is very active and involved with the work of the church even still today. As a child I attended Lakeland Christian School and graduated from there in 2010. From high school I immediately went into college and attended a community college for a few years obtaining my associates degree. From community college I went on to receive my bachelor’s degree in Sports Management Business Administration from Florida College in Temple Terrace, Florida. After college I worked as the marketing director for Chick fil-A and found myself actively involved with mission trips organized by Latin American Missions based in Valdosta, Georgia. After being involved with multiple short term missions I felt that ministry was where I was needed and where I felt that I could best use my talents in the Lord’s church. After much prayer and consideration at the age of 27 I attended Florida School of Preaching, which was conveniently located at my home congregation, South Florida Avenue church of Christ. I graduated the school of preaching in 2019 and shortly after landed a job as part time youth minister in Florence, Alabama in March of 2020. I was there with my wife through the end of 2021. Shortly after the turn of the year we decided to move to Huron, South Dakota and are actively involved with the work at the Wisconsin Avenue church of Christ.
