Dr. Nathan Cothen


Nathan Cothen, a Ph.D. graduate from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, was called to bring people closer to God and to each other. He has been serving the Southeast Texas community since 1999, from his ‘truth in love’ preaching of God’s word to helping friends, families and total strangers recover from multiple hurricanes and floods.

He and his wife, Vicki, have been married for thirty-six years. They have two grown boys, both married and living productive Christ-centered lives. And they recently celebrated the birth of their first grandchild, a beautiful baby girl.

In 2022, God called Nathan to start a new work in the same area, SETX Church (pronounced see-tex.) The first service in March showed the need for this brand new work as almost 900 people attended that Charter Service. 

Since then, SETX Church has averaged 700-800+ weekly in physical attendance, with many more watching the streaming of the Sunday service online. Bro. Nathan has a daily ‘Breakfast Biscuit’ on Facebook that he hosts five times a week, ‘a great way to fortify your day’ with God’s word.

Looking toward the future as God leads and directs this wonderful new church, Nathan’s goal is to lead people closer to the Truth of God and never further away.
