Executive Director of Ministry and Mission,
North Avenue Presbyterian Church
Matt leads North Avenue Presbyterian Church in living out mission in the heart of the city and around the world. He believes that healthy ministry flows from mutuality that tears down the walls between the privileged and the materially poor. He encourages those on the margins to find their voice and use it to strengthen God’s kingdom. He leads a weekly men’s community bible study that values mutuality in listening and learning, is a Peacemaker trained conflict coach, and serves as a national trainer for The Chalmers Center.
Matt is married to the love of his life, is the father to two daughters, and holds a Master’s degree in Global Leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary. Matt is honored to help create an environment at North Avenue where we are becoming a people of embodied presence among the materially poor, refugees, international students, and the church in difficult areas of the world.
