Matt's journey with the Lord Jesus began at age 4, and he was baptized at 14. While attending a Christian college, God challenged Matt to a deeper level of faith. At age 19, after wrestling with his salvation, Matt made a firm decision to follow Christ and was re-baptized a few years later.
A native of Richmond, Matt began serving as the WEBC praise & worship leader in January 2002. He has enjoyed being involved in a new church plant almost from the start. That same year, he married his wife Jenny (also from Richmond), and God has since blessed them with a daughter and a son.
During the week, Matt works in marketing communications. He also enjoys listening to music of all kinds, working on computers, using other languages, and amateur photography.
One of Matt's favorite scripture passages is Philippians 2:6-11, especially in the poetic quality of the International Standard Version.
