Nathanael (Aka Thanael) is a Colorado native who grew up in southwest Denver. After being homeschooled and graduating from high school in 2013, and having a semester of college credits under his belt, he decided it would be beneficial to have a solid year in study of the bible before continuing on with college. So in the fall of 2013 Thanael enrolled in bible school at Ravencrest Chalet. Afterwards, he went on to continue studying at Red Rocks Community College then transferred to Metropolitan State University of Denver, for the 2015 fall semester, to study Technical Communications with an emphasis in social media. In preference of hands on experience versus classroom learning, Thanael jumped at the opportunity to reconnect with Ravencrest and join the Torchbearers communication team. At the beginning of 2016, he moved back to Estes Park to run and administrate the Torchbearers online store and serve in the Ravencrest Audio/Visual and social media role. Thanael enjoys photography, exploring and adventuring, social media, and connecting with people.
