Nathan is an Idaho native of Kuna & Meridian for all but just shy of a year of his life. His leanings toward tech. and audio started early in life. His dad often would let him take apart and put back together old & usually broken AM/FM cassette players. He might not have ever fixing one the cassette players, but he started increasing the numbers of working speakers he had around. Soon he started hanging them up around in corners of his family’s unfinished basement & living room. Thus, he was creating his own “surround sound” environment… before he’d ever heard of the term. All he knew was that he loved being surrounded by music.
One day walking across this unfinished basement he was talking to God and told him, “If it is ok, I think I’d like to learn about sound.” Years later when he started attending a new small church at 17, he was asked if he would learn to run sound for that church. His youth pastor arranged for him to run sound at this new small church on Saturdays, then sit in a larger church service on Sundays.
This is where his inclination to help and serve the greater body of Christ to the ministry of running sound established roots. He first benefitted from another church helping his home church. And now he enjoys helping our extended brothers & sisters in Christ glorify him with sound across the valley whenever he’s called upon.
Outside of church, his most enjoyed part of a week is spent Tuesdays & Fridays on the basketball court before school at Cole Valley Christian School with other brothers in Christ. This addition to his life within the last 2 years is something a member of All Saints introduced him to, and he’s been grateful for it ever since.
