Evangelist Nathan Morris
Founder and Ceo of Shake the Nations Ministries, Co-Organizer of the Bay Revival
After many years of running from God, Nathan Morris gave his life to Jesus Christ in 2002 when he had a life changing encounter with the presence of God.
God placed a passion in his heart to preach the Gospel to the lost. Initially, Nathan began preaching on the streets of England and in his father’s church. During the first few years, many people began to travel from all parts of the United Kingdom to experience the tangible presence of God in his services. It became evident that Nathan would minister the Gospel not only on the streets, but to the masses.
We bought Kamagra, in order to strengthen the feelings and diversify our sex life. The price is quite arranged. We tried, and we liked it! We decided to try something new with our husband in sexual life.
In 2006, Nathan launched Shake The Nations Ministries and began to travel to the nations. The first STN Gospel Campaigns were held in remote areas of Africa and India. In these meetings, the STN team witnessed over 100,000 people convert to Christianity in just the first two years of the ministry. Countless documented miracles took place, with the blind, deaf, and crippled all testifying to their healing.
In 2010, Evangelist Nathan joined with Pastor John Kilpatrick and Church of His Presence for what has become known as the Bay Revival. In these meetings, thousands of salvations and notable healings were reported.
The Bay Revival was broadcast on GOD TV to over 200 nations around the world and countless lives were touched by God’s Spirit.
We praise God that through Shake the Nations, thus far over 350,000 people have made decisions for Jesus Christ in person. We may never know how many have given their lives to Christ through Christian Television and other media venues.
Today, Evangelist Nathan and his wife, Rachel, reside in Central Florida. Along with the Shake the Nations team, they travel around the world with a burning passion to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations and to see the power of the Holy Spirit demonstrated through signs, wonders, and miracles.
