Nathaniel Thompson, Campus Minister

Hi there! My name is Nathaniel and I am the RUF Campus Minister at Western. I grew up in Washington and went to Inglemoor High School and the University of Washington. RUF at UW had a huge impact on me. By the time I graduated I felt like the 'gospel of grace' that I first heard about in RUF was the most compelling thing out there. After graduating I worked with college students in Nebraska for a couple years and then attended Covenant Seminary in St. Louis.

While at Covenant, I met my wife and best friend Suzy. After graduating in 2010 we moved to Kailua, Hawaii and I served as an Assistant Pastor at a local church. In 2016 we moved back to Washington to help start RUF at Western. We brought with us our three delightful and energetic children, Iain (2010), Addie (2012) and Owen (2015).

Suzy and I love sharing meals with friends, watching anything good on Netflix, and playing outside. We would love to get to know you. If you want to know more about us, RUF, etc., please don't hesitate to contact us via email ( or cell (Nathaniel: 360.908.1664; Suzy: 360.908.1665). Friend me on Facebook.
