Nelson grew up in church and attended college at Mississippi State University. He then became a teacher and basketball coach until God called him to coach a different game. Nelson and Pam have now spent the majority of their lives as Lead Pastors at Church of the Crossroads, a strong and growing interdenominational church in Corinth, MS. Their leadership, loyalty and love have been life-changing for scores of families over the years.
They have three children, who are all married and serve in ministry. They also have four grandchildren, with more on the way!
