Natalie Fancher has a heart for discipleship and is a natural encourager. She was a new Christian and a new Army Officer in 2002 when she moved to Germany. God orchestrated wonderful Christian connections which lasted 2 years in Germany and 9 months in Kuwait/Iraq. Various mentors and disciplers taught her how to research words in Greek and Hebrew, use cross referencing, pray through scripture, and pass on what she was learning. These people have remained in Natalie’s life and continue to help her grow in her faith. Studying the Bible, praying, and experiencing Jesus through community are now Natalie’s passions. The seeds planted during those early Christian years have had a lasting effect on Natalie’s life.

She currently lives in Dublin, Ohio with her husband, Matt, and sons, Lukas 11 and Levi 8 (L&L). Reading, playing Tennis, playing Ultimate Frisbee, running, hiking, scribbling down thoughts or quotes, volunteering, working as a Crossing Guard at L&L’s school, and spending time with her family keeps her busy. The temptation of new adventures keeps Natalie consistently planning the next trip.

Natalie has called Vista home since 2012. Her time volunteering at Vista and studying the Word of God with Lifegroups and Bible studies has made the people of Vista feel like family. It is a privilege for her to be The Kids Community Director helping the message and influence of the Gospel come alive for children.
