Nathan grew up back a long country road in Southern York County. As a kid, a large amount of his time was spent serving in the Church, where his Dad and Grandfather were both full-time pastors. His Mom and Dad raised four boys, of which he is the youngest. At an early age he put his trust in Jesus and was baptized by his Dad and Grandfather in a lake on a family retreat. As a teen, Nathan sensed a strong desire to tell his friends about the grace and truth of Jesus. He first became employed as a Youth Director at age 19 and studied Youth Ministry at Lancaster Bible College. In graduate school, he studied Education, focusing on at-risk populations. Nathan says he and his wife, Jamie, are blessed with a blended family: Sarah & Jenna (twins, both 23 years old), Haley (16), Maria (11), and Justice (9). They also have two grandchildren under the age of 1, Evelyn and Lincoln.
