Nathan Stucky, MDiv ’10, PhD ’13, serves as director of The Farminary Project at Princeton Theological Seminary. He grew up on a farm in Kansas where his love for Christian faith and agriculture first took root. After earning a BA in music from Bethel College (Kansas), Nathan spent six years doing ecumenical youth ministry on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and two years farming back in Kansas. After farming, Nathan earned an MDiv and a PhD (practical theology, Christian education and formation) from Princeton Theological Seminary. His scholarship explores the integration of theological education and agrarianism, and he sees the Farminary as a locus for enacting that integration. Ordained in the Mennonite Church (USA), Stucky engages Farminary work as integral to his calling to teaching ministry. He lives in Princeton, New Jersey, with his wife and three children.
