Nathan Ealy

Nathan has been effectively serving churches as a generosity strategist since 2010.  His expertise includes capital campaigns, church stewardship analysis (Stewardship Discovery) and generosity coaching.  Nathan’s clients include churches as small as 250 and as large as 2500 and include most major denominations.

His work has been highly influenced by growing up as a “preacher’s kid” and then observing his father as he moved into church generosity consulting.  His passion for stewardship was first taught by his parents and then matured in his own faith journey.  His greatest joy is found when persons share how their participation in a generosity campaign proved to be a life changing spiritual experience.

Nathan is a graduate of Auburn University where he earned a BA in Mass Communications and played Soccer.  After graduation, Nathan served as a producer and broadcaster for IMG College at Auburn University and Georgia Tech and with the Tennessee Titans Radio Network. Nathan uses his education and experience with cutting edge media to effectively communicate with audiences of varying ages, demographics and perspectives. Nathan is also a commissioned member of the Chuck Colson Center Fellows Program.

Nathan lives in Centre, Alabama, with his wife and two daughters.  When you do not find him with his family or serving in a church, you are likely to find Nathan at a sporting event or on the golf course.
