Rev. Dr. Nate Landis is President and founder of Urban Youth Collaborative (UYC), a coalition of churches that support student leaders at over 100 middle and high schools in San Diego County. Thousands of young people share spiritual and physical food with friends each week as they discuss the big questions of life. Nate’s passion is to share how Jesus brings hope, wholeness, and the purpose of eternity into young lives. He is an ordained minister and evangelist in the Presbyterian Church (USA) who speaks often at churches, schools, and conferences in Southern California. He serves as Pastor to Schools at New Vision Christian Fellowship, a multi-ethnic urban congregation in North Park that he helped plant. In 2006, Nate made the smartest decision of his life and married his best friend, Angela. They have three fun loving and adorable kids: Russell (9), Rocco (7), and Allegra (4).
