Prior to Nate coming to on staff with ECV, he was the Assistant Pastor at Vineyard New Haven and did campus ministry at Southern Connecticut State University. He also has spent time volunteering for Elm City Vineyard’s Roots (youth) Ministry. He loves: talking to teenagers and college students about Jesus, art history, beautiful design work, making corny jokes that not everyone appreciates, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
