Matt grew up in the Philadelphia area. He graduated from Oberlin College in OH and then worked as a web developer for four years before entering vocational ministry. He then graduated from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in IL. After many years of youth ministry, he felt a call to plant an outward-facing church in the DC metro area.
Matt is married to his joyful wife, Stephanie, and they have two wonderful kids, Gabby and Thaddeus. His passions include meeting new people and hearing their stories; making his family laugh; and rooting for his Philly sports teams! He's currently searching for a new hobby so if you have any ideas, he's open to suggestions!
