Nestor Soto, M.Div.
Nestor Soto began to follow Christ on at the age of 20, and at 26, he began to sense the call into ministry. After completing the missions program at RHEMA Bible Training College in Tulsa, OK, Nestor spent the next few years in short-term missions overseas, and teaching stateside. Nestor joined the staff of Christ Alive Christian Center in the Bronx, NY as its Evangelism and Discipleship Director in 1997, and in 2001, he moved to Milford, PA to plant Followers Christian Fellowship, an independent non-denominational church. During his five years as its pastor, Nestor also began to serve as director of pastoral services of the Andover Subacute and Rehab Center, a 702-bed skilled nursing facility in northern NJ, where he remained until 2009. In 2009, Nestor began post-graduate work at the Alliance Theological Seminary, earning his master’s degree in Biblical Literature in 2011, with an emphasis in New Testament Greek. Since graduation, Nestor has served as a teaching assistant and mentor in N.T. Greek, spiritual formation and Soul Care classes at ATS and as an adjunct professor at Nyack College. In June of 2013, Nestor was installed as lead pastor of the Peckville Alliance Church, and in 2018, he led the church through a successful merge with the Country Alliance Church in Clarks Summit, PA to form a new church community, Cornerstone Alliance Church, in Dickson City, PA. Since then, the church has continued to thrive and to grow.
Nestor is single, and lives in Mayfield, PA, with his companions Dante (a rescued greyhound) and Sage (a rescued American short-haired cat). Nestor is a naturalist and a contemplative. He enjoys running, rock climbing, hiking, journaling, photography, and pretty much anything else that get him outdoors.
