What a blessing to hear about an ETBU graduate making a difference in the Kingdom of God.  Nathan Davis graduated in 2002. Just this past May, he became Dr. Davis as he received his Doctor of Ministry in Expository Preaching from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Nathan is currently serving as the pastor of First Baptist Church of Coushatta, Louisiana. Since 2010, the congregation of 175 has seen a 45 percent increase in Sunday morning attendance.  In the same time period, the church has baptized 22.

His wife, Melanie (Latiolais) graduated from ETBU in 2000.  Melanie is a stay at home mom with their children, Reagan and McKinley.
