Nathan and Mary Margaret were married in 2007, and they live in McKinney, TX. They are blessed to be the parents of four children, Lillie, Andrew, Kelyn and Addie.
Nathan serves as the Director of Mobilization for the 25 Project to recruit, train and develop Christ followers to engage and participate in His mission to serve orphan and vulnerable children. Nathan spent eight years serving in ministerial church staff positions in Mississippi and served then served four years with a missions organization sharing the Gospel in South Sudan. Compelled by the Gospel, the 25 Project's mission is to bring hope and healing to the least of these.
Jesus speaks of the “least of these” in Matthew 25, and says that when we care for this group of people, that we actually care for Jesus Himself. It is from these words in Matthew 25, and the calling of God, that the ministry of the 25 Project was born and exists. While the “least of these” comprises a broad range of people, the 25 Project is specifically focused on bringing hope and healing to orphan and vulnerable children. A quick survey of our world unfortunately shows millions upon millions of children who are orphaned, abandoned, and vulnerable. Children belong in families, not on the streets and not in institutions. God’s perfect design for them is to be raised in a home by a loving family who will nurture, instruct, and disciple them to live for Him and share Him with a lost world. However, living in a home with a loving family for many children is seemingly only a dream.
The 25 Project works to see that the dream of a home and a family becomes a reality while continually pointing each child to a transforming relationship with Jesus. The 25 Project works in Dominican Republic, Sierre Leone, and South Asia.
