Nate and his wife Heidi were previously the directors of Jubilee Master’s Commission. At the end of the JMC year 2010, they were launched into the next step of their calling and became the lead ministers of Fusion Ministries in June of that year. They still had a passion for the Master’s Commission program and so decided to keep the program going under its new name, Joint Master’s Commission (based off of Ephesians 4:16).
Nate and Heidi carry a passion to see the message of the Kingdom of God infiltrate the whole earth. Their heart is to pass the culture of God’s Kingdom on to the next generation through the Biblical relationship of father to son. They both have hearts like that of a father and live their lives for the next generation. They demonstrate the love of God as they lay down their lives for others and continually live with passion, loyalty and risk.
Nate and Heidi have four beautiful children between the ages of 6 and 10: Israel, Corban, Shekinah, and Zion.

What is you favorite:
Book besides the Bible? God's Generals by Roberts Liardon, or any Christian biography, because it gives us a glimpse into the lives of great men and women of God--to see the price they paid, the gifts they had the privilege of flowing in, the vast numbers of people they had the privilege of loving on, how passionately they loved God and were obedient to Him no matter the cost, and a chance to learn from their mistakes
Season and why? I can't say I have an absolute favorite, I like something about every season--spring for it's sights and smells, summer for that casual feeling that goes with it, fall because it's a second spring, only now the trees are the flowers, and winter for the snow and cozy get-togethers with 17 masters commission students!!!
