Pastor/Elder

Pastor Profile Pic

Nathaniel serves as the Church Planter/Pastor of ECBC. He desires to see believers in the greater Cincinnati area equipped to effectively build the body of Christ. Because such equipping takes place through the living Word of God, Pastor Pringle’s vision centers on accurately delivering Bible truth. This vision includes weekly expositional messages, Bible-centered counseling, and interactive discipleship

Before coming to Cincinnati, Pastor Pringle spent nine years mentoring and discipling young men in a university setting while completing his formal pastoral preparation (M.Div). He desires to shepherd the flock of God in a way that demonstrates Christlike compassion, absolute assurance in the sufficiency of God’s Word, and addresses the deepest spiritual needs of all who attend. 

Nathaniel’s primary pursuit is the establishment of Eastside Community Bible Church. He enjoys preparing to bring the Word, fellowship with those currently attending, and better acquainting himself with the area and people of East Cincinnati. Spending time with the family also ranks high on his priority list. Discipling his three daughters is a joy as they daily amaze him with growing vocabularies and limitless reservoirs of energy and creativity.

Katie’s calling as a wife and mother keeps her occupied full-time! She seeks to maintain well-ordered home and disciple her daughters alongside Nathaniel. She enjoys the fellowship with the ladies in the church and sharing each other’s burdens through times of prayer and conversation. Her goal is to be a helper in the ministry and faithful in her roles at home.

Jake Swanson
Elder

Jake

The Lord graciously saved Jake from sin’s condemnation at a young age, for which he is eternally grateful. Since coming to Christ, God has been continually changing Jake into conformity to the image of Christ. Jake moved to Cincinnati with his family in 2013 to help establish the work at Eastside Community Bible Church. He completed his formal ministry training (Master of Divinity) in 2011 and faithfully serves in any capacity of ministry. Working full-time as a painter and overseeing his young family supplies plenty to do! Jake is a capable communicator of God’s Word and a compassionate, straightforward counselor.

Serving in the capacity of elder at ECBC, Jake desires to see the church body grow in an increasing knowledge of and love for God, walk in the way of God’s Word, and disciple those who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior.

Jake and Liz have four beautiful children: Jakey, Ashley, Daisy, and Joel. Liz ministers full-time in the home as she homeschools the three oldest. She enjoys serving in a variety of roles at ECBC, including the nursery coordinator.
