Pastor Nathan Janssen

Pastor Janssen assists in discipline, when needed, and is available for counseling families during crises.  As Pastor at Prince of Peace since 1989, he is well known by many in the community as a result of his organization of the Salvation Army Kettle campaign, and the over 1,500 students who have attended Prince of Peace School or Precious Playmates Daycare since 1995.   You might also see him around town as his family is also very active in the music departments and sports teams in the Martinsville School District.
