Beating in rhythm with

God's heartbeat and mission

When you say the phrase ‘Missionary to the Unreached’, Nathan is not the person you picture in your mind. He is not particularly boisterous, gritty or adventurous. In fact, for most of his life you would have been far more likely to see his picture next to words like homebody, awkward, or cautious. Jesus changed everything for him though.

He may not be the stereotypical risk taker, but he has seen God move in some crazy ways around the world.

Nathan is a follower, missionary, teacher, encourager, and Kingdom equipper who, along with his wife, Taylor, longs to see God’s Church fully alive and beating in rhythm with His heartbeat and mission. He also longs for more people in more places to encounter the living Jesus.

About Nathan

His love for Jesus and passion for people to know Him has taken Nathan to numerous remote and difficult locations. Places he never thought he would go to. Places where the road ends but the Spirit of the Lord says, “keep going”. He has seen God move mightily, drawing people to himself. He has seen tribal people meet the living Jesus and be changed. He has seen Muslims open to hearing the message of Jesus and respond. He has seen God open doors among people groups who are guarded under lock and key. He has seen as the good news and presence of the living Jesus utterly changes lives.

Nathan lives in Colorado and is a graduate of Colorado Christian University with a bachelor’s degree in theology. He currently serves as a youth and missions pastor at his local church and travels as an itinerant missionary.

Travels from

It is the ordinary  

people that God chooses to use. Just as none are disqualified from his salvation, so none are disqualified from joining him in mission. All He is looking for is a simple “yes, Lord.” How will you respond?
