Meet Patrick & Jamie Nachtigall

Patrick received his B.A. from Anderson University and his M.A. from Yale University in the field of religion. Born in Costa Rica, he has lived in Latin America, Asia, and North America and is now the Regional Coordinator for Europe and the Middle East (Global Missions) and leads the Three Worlds Team. Patrick has traveled to 70 countries around the world and lived in 6.  He has written on issues relating to religion and globalization for a number of periodicals and journals.

The author of four books, Patrick likes to explore the global shifts occurring in religion. His first book Passport of Faith: A Christian’s Encounter with World Religions is used in a few different colleges and seminaries around the world and his second book Faith in the Future: Christianity’s Interface with Globalization was named one of the Top 40 books of 2008 and 2009 by World Magazine. His latest book is entitled Mosaic: A Journey Across the Church of God and is a 6 continent journey around the world and reveals the complex landscape that churches and Christian organizations must struggle to navigate at the dawn of the 21st Century. His fourth book is set to be released in 2014. Entitled "In God We Trust? A Challenge to American Evangelicals," it looks at the impact of American culture on Christianity in America from a global and historical perspective.

 Jamie Nachtigall was born in Washington but grew up in Cairo, Egypt. Like Patrick, she is a TCK (third-culture kid) and has always felt more at home on an airplane than in any one country.

She attended Anderson University where she pursued a degree in English. During her college years Jamie spent several summers overseas working in Hong Kong and at Mother Teresa’s Home for the Destitute and Dying in Calcutta, India. Prior to that, she worked with disabled adults in Seattle and Portland.  Most recently she served as the Membership Coordinator for both the Yale University Art Museum and the Yale Center for British Art and along with Patrick lived and worked in Hong Kong for nearly 10 years.

Jamie loves travel, and cross-stitching. On average, she reads more than 35 books a year.  She also enjoys working with the disabled.  Patrick and Jamie were married in 1997 and their son Marco was born in Hong Kong in 2003.
