CONWAY — It was a circuitous journey from Indonesia to Conway. Pastor Nathan Karcesky was born in Indonesia to missionary parents who devoted 40 years ministering to a tribal group. English was not his first language as his early childhood was immersed in tribal culture and he spoke the tribal dialect.

When most first graders take a yellow school bus to school, he took a plane to boarding school in another part of Indonesia. In high school, he attended boarding school in Malaysia. He credits his upbringing to “his joy in traveling, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures.”
