About Us


Since 2002 co-founders, husband and wife Rick and Vicki Kardos and the Nathan Project leadership team have engaged the ‘pornified’ culture in and out of the Evangelical Church in a battle for the health of the family unit. They live and keep the Nathan Project home office in Goffstown, NH. They attend Christ’s Church of Amherst in Amherst, NH holding past and current leadership roles in worship and men’s ministry.

Nathan Project — Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired and the only infallible, authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
  2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
  3. We believe in
            • the full deity and full humanity of Christ (John 1:1-14, Hebrews 1:3-5, 2:5-18),
            • in His virgin birth (Luke 1:26-38),
            • in His sinless life (2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 4:15),
            • in His miracles (John 10:31-38),
            • in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood,
            • in His bodily resurrection (John 20:1-31, Acts 1:1-3, 1 Corinthians 15:1-8),
            • in His ascension to the right Hand of the Father (Acts 1:4-11),
            • in His present rule as Head of the Church (Ephesians 1:22, 5:23, Colossians 1:18),
            • in His personal return in power and glory (Revelation 19:11-16, 22:7-21).
  4. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (2 Corinthians 3: 17-18).
  5. We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of all who are separated from God by sin and rebellion (John 14:15-21, Romans 8:1-11, 1 Corinthians 12:3).
  6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are lost unto damnation (Matthew 25:41-46), and they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life (Matthew 25:31-40, 1 Corinthians 15:42-57).
  7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across races, genders, and classes (Colossians 3:11).

Thirty-eight years, that’s how long I had been locked in a pattern of sexually acting out and shame.
As a young teenager I stumbled into sexual addiction as a way to try to not feel the pain that I felt from my childhood experiences.
It’s been about 2 years since I stood up in the School Gym and talked about the secrets that keep us sidelined in being the men we want to be for God.

Good Morning/Afternoon, my name is ******** and I am here today to share with you how the Nathan Project has impacted my life.
I enjoy hiking, camping, being outdoors. But I can count on one hand the number of times I have held a fishing rod.
I am not a Fisherman
