Nate grew up in a Christian home where the Gospel was consistently preached, but it took until his junior year of high school for the truth of the Gospel to finally take over his heart. His mom was diagnosed with a severe brain tumor when Nate was 5 years old. To treat the tumor the doctors did a surgery that severely affected her brain. This created a drift in their relationship that ended up showing Nate just how sinful he really was and that he needed a savior to allow him to approach God.

He attended the University of Northwestern. While there a senior football player named Mike began to spend time with him. As they spent more time together Mike began to show him how the Gospel radically changes every part of your life. This began to affect how Nate spent his time, treasure and talents.

Nate has become passionate about spreading the good news of the Gospel to those who have never heard and those who were like him, trying to live comfortably with the world and Jesus. He is a campus staff who has a passion for discipleship, evangelism and reaching the lost world by affecting one life at a time, just like Mike did for him.
