Matt was born and raised in Southern California, and his lovely bride, Dianna, is from Portland, Oregon. He and his family have been ministering in the UK since 2003. In 2011, Matt, Dianna, and their four children became British citizens, and has been in full-time ministry since 1997, the same year that he married Dianna (not implying she is his full-time ministry). Matt has been involved in church planting and pastoral ministry in the United States, Austria, and here in the United Kingdom. The Lord led Matt to start Disciples Church in 2007, and along with pastoring at Disciples Church, he is also working on a theology degree from Oak Hill College.
Matt’s preaching focuses on revealing Jesus in the Scriptures, then applying God’s Good News to our lives. He seeks to declare timeless truths in timely ways. In recent years, Matt has a great passion for the church locally expressed.
Matt loves to spend time with his family, reading, running, and during the American football season, following the Los Angeles Rams.
