Nathan was born in the small town of Stockton, Missouri. Raised in a Christian home with a Youth Pastor father through which he saw at an early age the importance of ministry. In the wake of a tornado in his home town, he felt a draw to disaster relief and perused that through several disaster relief mission trips, as well as an internship in that field. Through this he was able to gain insight in the flexibility needed for doing ministry. He then became aware of IdRaHaJe through his college and was on adventure staff during the summers of 2016 and 2017, following which he stayed on for the IdRaHaJe Christian Camping Internship. Nathan was the SaLT Coordinator for the summer of 2018 before coming on to full time staff as the Adventure Program Assistant.
