As the founder and President of Love Africa Mission, Nathan is passionate about life change for students serving on teams year after year in Africa. As an international speaker, he has been preaching the Gospel for decades all over the world, partnering with ministries like Compassion International, YWAM, Youth For Christ, Young Life, FCA, Africa Inland Mission, and countless churches. Nathan led his first team to Kenya in 2007, where he spoke at Rift Valley Academy and CURE Hospital. Since that time, Nathan has recruited, equipped, and sent hundreds of people on student and adult teams to East Africa because he knows that Jesus will break their hearts for the nations just as his heart was broken.

Nathan’s passion and love for people translates throughout all of his ministries as he points everyone he meets to Jesus. If you close your eyes while he speaks in his African accent you might mistake him for a native.


In February 2018, Stephanie will join Love Africa as Ministry Coordinator. Before accepting this position, Stephanie worked at The Kings University in Southlake, Texas; spearheading operations, events, and assisting the President in all his affairs.   In addition to her extensive experience in administration, she had the privilege of working with housemothers of orphaned children in Zambia, Africa – as she lived there for most of the year of 2012.

Stephanie has spent her life passionate about bringing hope and love to children around the world – touching lives in Zambia, Philippines, and Jamaica. She is ready to open her hands and heart to the work of Love Africa.

Stephanie has been married to her husband John for 30 years. They have 3 amazing children. They have served all over the world together as a family! Serving Jesus with her family is the joy of her life!


Rachel also assists with the administrative tasks of Love Africa. She has a passion not only for Africa, but for students as well. Her dream is to work for a nonprofit one day and maybe even start her own.

Rachel is currently finishing up her senior year at Clemson University where she is studying Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management. At Clemson she has a heart for Young Life as well as FCA and just really loves people. Rachel is a little too obsessed with Justin Bieber and will spend all day convincing you that he genuinely loves the Lord.  She also can name any song within the first 5 seconds of hearing it—we’re not kidding.



David Winn and his wife Janet, has served as an educator for years in Eden, NC and first experienced Love Africa when his daughter, Laura, went on a trip to Kenya while she was attending Duke University. He has developed and lead Love Africa’s newest expansion to serve the people of Uganda. For more information please explore our website, and consider joining us on a future trip to Uganda!

Our desire is that every person that serves on a short-term trip with us will come home with a clear vision and a pure passion to serve right where they live.
