Matt grew up in southern California until 1997 when he moved to Nebraska. He met his future wife, Amy, first, but met Christ shortly thereafter through his church’s college ministry. Having been a professing Christian up till then, he became aware that the cross addressed his personal sin, and that he had never understood how Christ’s finished work came to apply to him by God’s free gift of faith.
Having come originally to help plant Emmaus Bible, Matt now serves as a non-vocational pastor, coordinates Sunday Morning education for adults, and leads a Gospel Community. He and his wife Amy have three children, Madison, Caleb and Molly.
