Matt grew up in Central Maine. At the age of six, he gave his life to the Lord Jesus Christ. He was introduced to verse by verse, through-the-Bible teaching at a local Calvary Chapel when he was in high school. The Lord provided Matt the opportunity to go through a School of Ministry, and then gave the blessed privilege to serve through local and international missions, youth ministry, full-time residential discipleship ministry, jail ministry, worship ministry, men’s ministry, a supporting role in a church plant, and tech & web ministry. He married his wife Emily in 2012, and they moved to Lynchburg in 2019. Shortly after the move, they visited Calvary Chapel Lynchburg and knew this was exactly where the Lord desired them to become an active part of the body.

Psalm 27:14 – “Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!”
The lesson of waiting, specifically, on the LORD is one that has properly refocused my attention in this hectic world. When there is unsettledness, I have to remind my heart it needs a course correction; one only realized in the presence of the Living God—in the waiting. Being the Good Shepherd, He provides all things for life and Godliness. There is no one like Him. He is always, always worth waiting on.
