Mr. Wood grew up in Pewaukee, Wisconsin where he fell in love with the game of basketball at an early age. Although he grew up in the Catholic and Lutheran faith, Mr. Wood started following worldly pursuits by the time he was in high school. In 2014 he graduated from Coe College in Cedar Rapids, IA with a bachelor's degree in Biology. Prior to graduation he began pursuing his dream of 'making it' as a hip-hop and rap artist in the music industry. This was against his original plan of becoming a high school biology teacher. Through his pursuit, He was reintroduced to the God of the Bible and saved from the world by the grace of Jesus Christ. Mr. Wood is passionate about serving everyone in his sphere of influence and eager to help everyone understand how deep the love of Christ runs for them. He is beaming with joy for the opportunity he has to take the experiences God has given him and use them to pour into students through physical education. Nathan is also a coach for the boy's basketball team, and says his greatest honor other than being a Son of God is being a husband to his wife, Paige.
