Associate Pastor of Family Ministries


Matt grew up in Coral Springs, Florida. He graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Youth ministry from Grace College in Winona Lake, IN in 2006. He served as the Youth and Children's pastor at Greenville Grace Brethren Church for 7 years prior to joining the staff at Crossroads in May of 2014. Matt's passion is to help others find their satisfaction in Jesus alone!

Matt met his best friend Isabel while at college and they have been married since June of 2006. They have five children – Audrey, Jack, Micah, Wesley, and Penelope – who certainly keep them busy! Along with enjoying spending time with his family, Matt also enjoys music (listening, playing, singing, and doing weird dance moves with his kids), playing almost any sport (especially basketball), watching sports (Go Blue!), and making fires in his fire pit!
