Mission | About
After working with an arts non profit in Washington DC on social media I launched Compassion in Politics to discuss the role of compassion in politics both on the local and national level. Compassion in Politics has transcended this and become so much more:
• Christian internet ministry and church social media strategy
• The intersection of politics and the Bible
• My hometown in Nashville, Tennessee (aka Music City)
• Creating solutions for the base of the pyramid (the poorest of the poor)
• Christian solutions to poverty and social justice.
• Education technology, e-learning, and innovation
• Christian non-profits and charities
• Social enterpreneurship
• Social media for nonprofits and business
• Global poverty issues
I’m a creative. I’m a visionary. I’m a Christian. I’m a lover. And I’m human. I have a deep passion to see Gods work and vision lived out in me and touching the lives of those around the world.

If you would like to know more about my professional life and my background feel free to read further….
My name Nathan Ketsdever and I’m a professional communication strategist, researcher, and lifelong teacher and trainer. More to the point, I am a social media, Web 2.0 communications, and blog consultant to organizations of all types. I also happen to be the editor in chief of Compassion in Politics.
I’m a Nashvillian, who is a person of faith, is passionate about movies, and community service. My musical tastes range from U2 and Dave Matthews to Jack Johnson and Nickel Creek. I read vociferously in the politics of social change, technology, and faith. I also possess mad origami skills and love sushi and thai more than your average guy.
I’ve been a digital native since the glory days of the early 1980’s, which is also how long I’ve been teaching folks of all ages to use computers. (Thats 28 years if you do the math). During those nearly three decades, I spent two plus years providing digital content organization and management for the Vanderbilt Law Library and training for organizations including the Cumberland Science Museum.
My Online Communities Engagement & Experience:
I joined my first online social network in the fall of 1999 and have been engaged in online communities and communication for almost a decade. I’ve been an influential and avid user of the latest in web 2.0 technologies over the past three years which is confirmed by the over 500 bloggers who have linked to my ideas and resources according to Technorati and my blog has received nearly a milllion visitor clicks (750,000+). Over the next year, a conservative estimate of my web metrics puts my visitor click count somewhere between 275,000 and 350,000. My technorati ranking is 433. (Technorati ranks all the blogs in the bloggosphere based on authority and reach) which puts me in the top 7,500 blogs overall out of the millions on the internet and close to the authority of established magazines with dozens of writers like Inc. That compares with Technorati authority rankings of 20 to 30, which is where average blogs tend to rank (in other words I outrank the majority of professors, authors, and so-called “experts” on the web). In my niches of elearning, social entrepreneurship, church technology, and social media I have a high ranking and authority compared to other similar blogs.
I create tailored online solutions that meet your unique marketing and budgetary needs. I look forward to working with you on your web branding projects. You can find those social media marketing, business blog coaching, and ethical search engine optimization services detailed here.
