    Pastor Nelson is enthusiastic, evangelical, and eager to help each, and every person discovers their personal place in God’s kingdom.  His warmth and spirituality convey his deep love of Christ.  One can immediately feel the joy that he brings. 


   In addition to his ministry at Wesley UMC, Pastor is the Protestant chaplain at Long Island University (CW Post campus).  He also speaks 7 languages fluently and is an official translator at the United Methodist General (World) Conference.


   While serving as Pastor, Chaplain, and translator, the Pastor is also a devoted husband and father.  Because of his unique experiences, he brings a new dimension to serving God.  We are honored to have him as our spiritual leader.
