Nate Parks, the oldest of four, was born in Texas and raised in Spain, where his parents were church planters. He’s traveled to over 40 countries and speaks two languages (although his English could use some work). Nate is passionate about leading people – both professionally and spiritually – and has a keen eye for seeing God at work around him. In addition to his role at Berea, Nate is a nationally recognized speaker and consultant, a New England Representative for NNYM, and serves on the boards of other non-profits. Nate and his wife, Heidi, have three kids, Grace, Bella, and Isaac, and a wiggly corgi named Lexi. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, fishing, riding his bike, and food – especially ice cream.
