After graduating from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1994, Nathan served churches in North Carolina, New Jersey, Colorado, Arizona and now California. He retired from the Army Reserve in November 2013 as a chaplain. There he reached the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and completed one tour of duty in Iraq.
Before becoming a chaplain, he served as a tank officer on active duty. Nathan enjoys spending time with his wife of 22 years. Together, they completed the almost four-year international adoption process. Pastor Nathan watches football, kayaks, listens to music from around the world, and follows international relations. Additionally, he travels to countries off the beaten path. He makes constant references to his two life-changing trips to Ethiopia. He went to Kenya in May 2013. He followed the steps of Saints Patrick, Brigid, and Columba in Ireland and the Isle of Iona in June 2015.
Nathan hopes to serve Christ United and San Diego in a way that will enable more people to know the love of God, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit as people of the 21st century.
