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!
