Gordon & Dalene Nelson

Gordon has been in pastoral for 20+ years, 15 of those years here at Brazil Bible Fellowship Church.

Gordon grew up on dairy farm in east central MN.  Believing God had called him into the ministry he studied at Citadel Bible College and Calvary Bible College.  After graduating from Calvary Bible College in 1989 he has served in lay youth ministry, served as an Associate Pastor of youth, music and AWANA and then as Pastor in IL for four years before coming to Brazil, IN.

The Bible as God’s inerrant and authoritative Word is what provides a message of hope that Pastor Gordon loves to proclaim and share with others.  He has a passion for proclaiming the truth of Scripture in practical, personal and relevant ways so that believers can experience transforming change in their lives.  He also loves to help others discover God’s truths for themselves.

Gordon and Dalene have been married since 1988 and have four children, two of whom are married and their youngest is currently a senior in high school.  As of October 2017 they are proud grandparents.  Gordon and his wife enjoy traveling when they can, attending sporting events, going on dates when possible, and watching Hallmark movies during the Christmas season.
