Matthew is originally from Southern California. After graduating high school, he moved to Texas and worked in full-time ministry.
In 2019, he graduated from The Forge, Pine Cove's leadership and discipleship program in Tyler, Texas. The eight-month program focuses on developing leaders who embody a faith worth following. Matthew says this was one of the most significant and life-changing experiences of his life, and he says he's a better leader, husband, and father because of it.
Matthew has a beautiful wife, Abigail, and daughter Milo.
He started working with Mentoring Alliance in 2021, and he says he's loved every second of being on the After School Team as an Area Director. "I am pumped for what we as a ministry are going to be able to do in the lives of kids and their families," Matthew says.
