Nathan Blevins
Chief Financial Officer and Business Manager

Nathan has recently joined the PEF team in May, 2016.  He holds a bachelor

degree in history and political science, and a second bachelor's degree in

accounting.  Both courses of study were finished at King University, in Bristol,

Tennessee.  As a minister's son, Nathan has always been keenly aware of the

importance of a strong support system for preachers of the Word, who devote

themselves to God's service. This is especially true for those serving Christ abroad.

He is thrilled to be able to join the PEF office, in order to help our faithful team members in the areas they need.  Born the oldest son, of Dr. Phil R. and Mrs. Carlen D. Blevins, he was raised in the deep South, and is happy to be back in sunny Appalachia, in the birthplace of Country Music: Bristol, Tennessee.  He is very thankful to God for his faithful wife, Courtney, and their 3 wonderful children, and looks forward to helping and serving PEF in the days ahead.
