Lead Pastor

Nathan Kollar

Nathan and Jessica Kollar had the joy of planting a healthy and sustainable church on the westside of Los Angeles that also multiplied into more church plants between 2009 and 2017. They turned over the leadership of that church to a wonderful successor and relocated to Nashville in December of 2017 with a vision to start a life-giving and diverse church family in this growing and culture-creating city. God has surpassed all they asked or imagined as Nathan has become the Lead Pastor at GraceLand and the two congregations have merged to form one new church church family.

Nathan is Ordained with the Assemblies of God and has served as an Executive Presbyter for the SoCal Network and a Partnership Developer for Church Planting Network. Before that, Nathan and Jessica served churches in various capacities such as worship, youth, and kids ministry. With years of experience in music and the arts, Nathan and Jessica approach what it means to pastor in a creative city with a unique perspective and grace. They have a passion to clearly reflect Jesus and help people find hope and meaning through knowing Him. They live in South Nashville with their three daughters; November, Kensington, and Nessa… and their newborn son, Clay.
