7-12th Grade English & History Teacher
Nate graduated from Northwestern College in St. Paul in 2013 with a BA in History and a double minor in Bible and Youth Ministry. He has served as the Youth Director at Meadow Creek Church in Andover, MN for the past 8 years.
He has wanted to be a teacher since high school, and has been able to use his experience as a confirmation to that calling. Working with teenagers and their families is something that he loves to do. Being able to serve as a Youth Director has given him the experience and skills needed to connect with, teach, and encourage youth in their faith. He is excited to continue to teach in a Christian environment and to help students understand history and literature from a Christian worldview. Helping students to understand what they believe and why they believe it is a vital part of his perspective on teaching.
Youth ministry hasn’t been the only thing that keeps Nate busy, he has also been a coach for Legacy Christian Academy’s Clay Target Team for the past 4 years. He has enjoyed being able to help encourage students in the sport and teach them life lessons in a context other than church and youth group.
Nate loves playing games, watching movies, trap shooting, hiking, and spending time with people. You can usually find him either inside playing board games, or outside enjoying a walk, or throwing a Frisbee around with friends. He has been married to his wife Christine for four years and the two of them love going for walks, playing games together, and traveling, mainly to the mountains!
