Graeme GoetzIntern Coordinator/Artisan Assistant
Graeme originally found out about Narrow Gate thorough our Guitar Classes offered by our woodworking team. After attending the guitar class and learning more about what Narrow Gate was all about, Graeme decided to take the leap of faith and applied to become a student at Narrow Gate Lodge. Upon graduation of NG Lodge, it was apparent that the Lord was working in and thru Graeme and his leadership skills (along with his life skills) made him the perfect candidate to lead our Internship program. Today, Graeme serves the organization by discipling students and interns. He gracefully manages several people and agendas while creating an atmosphere of peace, unity and Christlikedness. Oh - and he still finds time to develop and refine his woodworking skills by working alongside our woodshop team and teaching the students craftsmanship skills periodically.
