Meet the pastor

Hello, my name is Nate Wong. I am very thankful for the privilege of being the pastor of Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church.  I look forward to every opportunity I have to help others grow in their relationship to their Savior Jesus Christ.


I am very thankful for the wonderful family that you see here.  Kaitlyn, my wife, is a graduate of Martin Luther College with a Bachelor of Science in Education.  We have been married since 2020.  Our son, Samuel, was born in February of 2022.  Our son, Eli was born in October 2023, and we love spending every minute with these little guys! I graduated from Martin Luther College in 2018 with an emphasis in religion and foreign languages (Spanish, Greek and Hebrew).  I graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in 2022.  As part of my training to be a pastor,  I served as a vicar, or intern, at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Green Bay, WI in 2020-2021.  After graduation from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, I accepted the call to serve God's people at Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Lusby, MD and have enjoyed this exciting ministry every step of the way.


Each one of us needs a place where we can feel God's presence and worship him.  We also need encouragement from others to grow in our relationship with God and to grow together with others.  At Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church we have found our peace and comfort for life in our Savior Jesus Christ.  And we have found joy in the Christian family that we are together.  We look forward to meeting you and celebrating the new life that we have in Christ, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world!
