Nate Thiessen

Youth Worker (Portage)

Nate was born and raised in Portage and has many connections with various community groups within the city. He joined the team in 2020, quickly jumping into discipleship and facilitation of programs. His passion is to see people grow, transform and build genuine relationships. He was drawn to YFC/YU after seeing so many young people hungry for God and looking for places to connect. Seeing this, he wanted to be a part of creating more spaces and opportunities for the church to connect with youth in the community. His favorite part of the job is connecting people and seeing the Holy Spirit work in the lives of young people. He is the proud husband of Rita and father to his daughter Hayden who are both very involved in his ministry.
