- Peter & Kate Nash
Peter and Kate live in Waxhaw, North Carolina and work with Kalaam Media. At Kalaam Media our goal is to help language community teams create websites so that as many people as possible can access God’s Word in many ways in their heart language.
Peter connects language teams with the training needed to create and maintain Scripture websites. He travels extensively to lead training workshops. To increase the ability to grow, he also trains new trainers so that more websites can go live. Currently, KM has over 500 websites.
Locally Peter is a “sound guy” at their church. Kate teaches English as a Second Language to Spanish-speaking women. The Nashes are licensed as a North Carolina foster home.
As often as they can, they visit their grandkids (and the kids’ parents) in Atlanta. When it’s time for a break, Peter and Kate love to spend time at the beach.
