Nate Claggett

Associate Pastor

God reconciled Nate to Himself by faith in Christ at a young age through the faithful witness of his parents and used various opportunities and voices of wisdom to strengthen his early conviction that he was called to vocational ministry. After finishing studies at Baptist Bible College in Pennsylvania he served as a pastoral intern in his home state of New Hampshire, then as Pastoral Assistant at SBC for two years before becoming Associate Pastor in 2014.

Nate was married to Laura in 2009 (they met in 8th grade!). In 2013 God added a daughter to their family. He filled their hearts with joy and wonder, and their home with a baby girl again in 2017. In his free time Nate enjoys spending time with his family, reading, good coffee & conversation, the outdoors, music, sports, and his dog.

Paul Abdallah

Pastoral Assistant

God graciously saved Paul through his one mediator Jesus Christ when he was in middle school (while attending SBC!). Paul attended Liberty University and graduated with his degree May 2015. While attending Liberty, each summer Paul interned here at SBC and that led to him accepting the Pastoral Assistant position beginning June 2015. He is now pursuing an MDiv in Discipleship & Family Ministry from Southern Seminary online.

In May 2015 Paul married his "high school sweetheart" Tori and in January of 2017 they welcomed their first child, Lydia Elizabeth. She is a gracious gift of God and Paul & Tori love the privilege of being her parents.

David and Julia were married in December of 1992 and have been blessed with 7 children over the years. Their family loves to ski, camp, hike, and serve the local church. They joined Stafford Baptist Church in the fall of 2004, and David was installed as an Elder in 2012.


Moses Abdallah

Lay Elder

Moses was saved by the grace of God early in his Air Force career. Moses met Camille while assigned to McGuire AFB, NJ and they were married in July of 1993 and were blessed with two beautiful children, and recently, a granddaughter. After 20 years, Moses retired from the military in 2002 and moved to Virginia for work.

They started attending Stafford Baptist Church on Easter of 2005, and Moses was installed as an elder in 2017.


Josh List

Josh was given the immense blessing of growing up in a home with parents that professed faith in Jesus. By God's grace, he was saved at a young age and grew up participating and serving in the life of the church.

Josh and his wife Kara moved to the northern Virginia area in 2009 after having both grown up in the Northeast. They are both New England sports fans! They also share a passion for music (Kara is an elementary music teacher!) and for serving the body of Christ in this venue. (1 Pet. 4:10 ) Josh also enjoys writing and recording original music.
