Nathanael Schey

Chief Operating Officer

Nathanael brings eight years of combined non-profit and higher education organizational management to GNU, having served as the Manager of Operations at the former Spokane campus of Moody Bible Institute, and before that, as the Daily Operations Manager at the City Mission of Findlay, in Findlay, OH. He is currently responsible for the university's business administration and operations, as well as assisting the University President in strategic planning. 

Nathanael credits his own faith journey to the faithfulness and godly influence of his parents, for which he is exceedingly grateful. Nathanael is a husband, married to Sonja, and a father of four rambunctious and wonderful children. He also currently serves on the elder team at Coeur d'Alene Bible Church, in Coeur d'Alene, ID.  

In his free time, Nathanael enjoys God's creation, purposefully exploring remote locations that are infrequently visited by other people. Toward this end, he regularly avails himself of the myriad wonders that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, including hiking, camping, and fishing.
