Nate has been with the Altamesa team since August of 2016. He is joined by his co-minister, best friend, companion, and wife: Kristin. They also bring their 3 energetic, fun-loving, funny, loud, and sweet kids: Jaxon, Brooklyn, and Tatum. Nate graduated from Lubbock Christian University with a degree in Youth and Family ministry on May 8, 2004 (a date easy to remember, because he married Kristin the same day). He has been in youth ministry at a vocational capacity since 2002. His primary responsibilities are to help teens create their own autonomous passion for God, and to equip their families to help instill that passion. Nate loves being involved in his family’s crazy life, living life surrounded by friends, hanging out with teens, competitions and sports of almost any kind, the Dallas Cowboys, and food. Nate hopes that in all things, God is glorified through his actions and that the Father’s joy is evident and infectious in his life.
