Nate Stewart, National Mental Health Initiative Director for CR
Nate Stewart serves as the National Director of Mental Health for Celebrate Recovery. He oversees the CR Mental Health Initiative that launched publicly in the summer of 2016. Being the son of a pastor, and as someone who has struggled for most of his life with mental health issues, Nate has a keen sense of what kind of impact the local church body can have on the lives of those who struggle daily with their mental health. It is in this spirit that Nate is moving forward to assist in breaking the stigma that surrounds mental health. Through Christ and the mental health initiative, he is working to spread the message that God’s love does not change just because a person is living with mental illness. We are not defined by our diagnosis, but are defined instead by the one who created us and redeemed us through our one true higher power, Jesus Christ.
Nate lives in northern Minnesota with his wife of 18 years, Sherawn; and their beautiful daughter Felicia. He serves at the local church level as a Pastoral Counselor. He has been living in recovery from addiction and mental health issues since February 26th, 2008.
