Nathan C. Walker
Reverend Nathan C. Walker (M.Div., Ed.M., M.A.) is executive director of 1791 Delegates. Named after the year the Bill of Rights was ratified, 1791 Delegates are constitutional and human rights experts that support organizations with strategic planning, fundraising, research, and educational programming on issues of religion and public life.
Nate previously served a strategic planner and then executive director of the Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum Institute in Washington, DC.
- In its first two years of the center’s operation, Nate helped generate over $2,000,000 in revenue – 96% of which came from new sources.
- He helped recruit and provided executive direction for a dynamic team of 40 professionals who, together, built from scratch a national Religious Liberty Education program.
- By the third semester, the center admitted students from 15 different states who expressed 25 different religious identities—61% of whom identified as people of color.
- By the fourth semester, the center offered nine semester-long, graduate courses for public school teachers and education leaders that were accredited through the center’s partner schools.
Nate is currently building upon these experiences in deploying 1791 Delegates to equip organziations to effectively address issues of religion and public life.
