- Director of Youth Ministries
A 2012 graduate of OSU with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport and Leisure Activities. Matt comes to us from Heartland Conference and Retreat Center, where he specialized in working with teens through games, teaching, faith based talks, and team building. His passion is to help students encounter their faith beyond the classroom and books – leading them to experience faith in Christ “hands on” through relationships, loving others, and service. He notes that this is the model of Jesus, who read and studied the Scriptures but then went out to the people and actively engaged them—a faith lived in word and deed. Romans 10:14-15 serves as a guide for his calling and his approach to ministry: How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?
