Nate has more than a decade of experience in youth ministry, including six years of ecumenical experience during which he was employed by three different churches from three different denominations all at the same time. (Not to fear, it was a wonderful thing!) Nate holds an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary and is currently working on a Ph.D. in Practical Theology (Christian Education/Youth Ministry) at Princeton. He is active in the Mennonite Church, USA, and frequently participates in youth ministry conversations at the denominational level within the Mennonite Church. Nate currently lives in New Jersey with his wife, Janel, and their three kiddos, Joshua, Jenna, and Isaac. In addition to spending time with his family, Nate loves music, friends, good food, Sunday afternoon naps, and laughter.
