In April of 2010, after 13 years of youth ministry, Nate and his wife, Vanessa, planted New City Christian Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In 2016, Nate started a church planting network in Albuquerque.  Around the same time, he sent out Abiel Diaz from New City to plant a Spanish speaking church in Albuquerque. With the help of Stadia and the new emerging network, Abiel launched Ciudad de Gracia in 2017. In his role with Stadia, Nate builds relationships with churches and planters in the Southwest region to plant more churches that intentionally care for children in the Southwest and globally! Nate and Vanessa have been married for 15 years. They have three children: Micah (12), Corban (9), and Evangeline (5).
