Matt has a passion for teaching and preaching God’s word and discipleship. He lives for the moment when someone really comes to understand the love that God has for them and the sacrifice they made for him. Through his own walk in chaplaincy training, he came to understand the importance of being able to step into one’s own brokenness and is passionate about helping others to navigate theirs so that they can fully understand the restoration that God is working in them. As a husband and parent of two children, Matt wants to see the families of the church grow deeper in their understanding of what it is to be a disciple and a disciple maker in their very own homes.

Matt is married to Molly and together they have two amazing girls, Hannah and Aleah.
