About Matt…

Pastor Matt’s life was once defined by addiction and hardship, but now defined by marvelous grace, restoration and redemption. He started vocational ministry in 2012 as a part-time worship leader, but has grown over a decade to see himself as a Pastor who happens to play music. He is currently pursuing his Master of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary, and has received undergraduate education from NYU, Berklee College of Music, and Southeastern University. He’s blessed to journey life together with his wife Kristin and son Benjamin (3 years old). Matt coordinates all things worship, technology, and communications at Effort Church.  Matt loves leading worship, but finds no greater joy than leading people to grow closer to Christ through personal investment.  Above all else, his personal mission is to make disciples who make disciples.
