Matt grew up in the Willamette Valley and was raised in a Christian home. At age 17 he prayed and asked Jesus Christ to be his personal Lord and Savior. He is so thankful for older believers and peers who challenged and encouraged him during those formative years. Matt met his wife Frankie at age 19 and they have been married for almost 24 years with 2 amazing children, Myles and Grace. The Lord called him into the ministry about 9 years ago and he is so thankful to get to be a part of what God is doing here at Calvary Corvallis. Matt loves building ministry foundations and seeing others raised up and equipped to do the work of the ministry.
