Ministry is a second career for Matt, who spent ten years as the Plant Manager of a small family owned manufacturing company in Detroit, MI. After returning to the church with his wife, Julie, Matt began to hear God’s call to ministry. He participated in and led Bible Studies, Sunday school classes, joined in contemporary worship music and traveled with Julie to Zambia, Africa as a missionary. His participation in these ministries led Matt to follow God’s call into ordained ministry.
Matt is a sports fan, enjoying football and hockey particularly, and follows all the Cleveland sports teams, Michigan State University (Go Green!) and the Detroit Red Wings. He is also a fan of science fiction and mythological movies. His favorites are Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, Harry Potter and The Highlander. Matt & Julie like to vacation at Disney World whenever they can, and are particularly fond of Epcot. Matt enjoys good music and likes to play his guitar and sing when he has a chance.
