MTS '17, Candler School of Theology, Emory University
BA in History and Education, Lipscomb University

Nathan joined the team in 2017 after finishing his theological education at Candler School of Theology, where he also worked in the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid for three years.  In undergrad, Nathan double majored in history and education and taught for six years before going back to school.  As a student and teacher, he's traveled extensively and benefited greatly from the hospitality of neighbors and strangers around the world.  For Nathan, admissions is the perfect opportunity to combine both of his passions for hospitality and education that he's developed throughout his life.  Outside of admissions, Nathan loves playing basketball, searching for the best tacos on Buford Highway, and hanging out with his dog, Haystack.  He's the very proud uncle of seven nieces and nephews.
