Nathan is the founder of TOAG Internships and part time consultant, instructor and coach for Frontiers. He also serves on a foundation that researches and funds wildly multiplying movements of Christ-followers among Muslims worldwide.
Having grown up in the Republic of South Africa in a cross-cultural ministry family, Nathan is the definition of a third-culture kid (just ask his wife). At 19 he returned to the nation of his birth (USA) where he earned a bachelors in philosophy and an M-Div from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Nathan served the same Evangelical Free Church from 1978 through 2011. In 1999 he stepped out of the lead role to follow his passion - preparing ‘beautiful feet’ to serve the Kingdom in places where the church is not ... yet.
In 2000 Nathan launched TOAG Internship to Train Ordinary (non-seminary) Apprentices (who treasure Jesus) to Go strategically to launch Disciple Making Movements among the least reached. TOAG Internships, now offered in multiple cities nationwide, have apprenticed hundreds of interns who serve or will soon serve the least reached of the world. For more information see www.toag.net.
In 2005 Nathan began serving part time with Frontiers so he could envision and coach others to launch fast-reproducing movements of people who treasure and trust Isa al Masih (Jesus Christ).
In 2005 Nathan also joined forces with an NGO that helps underwrite large organizations laboring to launch movements among the word’s least reached peoples. Traveling for this NGO has afforded him the privilege of witnessing some of the most amazing miracles in the 21st Century, hundreds of thousands of Muslims entering the Kingdom.
