Nate is an advocate for technology and its inclusion in more progressive and traditional forms of worship. You might see him from time to time with a video camera in hand.
Nate enjoys spending time with his wife Emma and their dog Rufus. All three, like long walks, good food, and lazy Saturday afternoons.
