Matt graduated from Baptist Bible Seminary with a Master's of Ministry degree. He and his wife Carol have served in pastoral ministry for more than 18 years.
He and his wife are blessed with 7 children, ranging in age from young adult to early elementary. They are so happy to be able to raise their family in Westfield with a church family that loves the Lord and each other.
Pastor Matt was blessed to grow up in a loving Christian home where he was consistently pointed to Christ by his parents. The sovereign Lord opened his eyes for the need for salvation at an early age, graciously and powerfully granting new life in Christ. During his teen years, Matt felt a strong sense of calling from the Lord for local church ministry. By God's grace, he's been pursing it ever since. Pastor Matt is passionate about Men's ministry, whether it be in small groups, retreats, or one-on-one discipleship.
His favorite verse can be found in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5:6, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied."
Matt enjoys woodworking and home renovations in his spare time. He doesn't have a favorite sports team, but he does enjoy the pizza and wings on game day.
