Nathan Katona is originally from Howell, MI, where he grew up as one of five children. He’s served with Palmer Home for Children in Columbus, MS since 2013, and currently manages their two thrift stores, which help fund their mission of caring for vulnerable children. He’s actively involved in his local church, along with his wife, Rachel and their two children, and he has traveled with multiple short-term mission teams to South America. His parents have recently adopted two sibling groups (six children), which has given him a unique perspective on the positive effects that a loving home and stable environment can have in the lives of abused and neglected children. Nathan is excited to be serving as emcee for the 2017 Whole Child Conference.
