Nate Mooney felt the Lord calling him to go to Africa at the age of 14. Just a year later, he went on his first trip to Kenya in 2014. He has since returned 4 times. Having lost his father at a young age, he is uniquely gifted to connect meaningfully with orphans and children in Kenya. Nate has demonstrated an unfaltering devotion to return back to Kenya on every trip possible with Go Near Ministry.
Little Rock Christian Academy, Nate received the Senior Warrior Award recognizing his Christian servant leadership in his school and community. As a college student, Nate serves as our youngest board member but has insights that will be of great benefit to Go Near Ministry. His favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11 “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”
