Pastor for Care and Engagement
Work: (719) 884-6170
Matt has had the joy of serving on staff at First Pres for 15 years. Ordained in August 2020, he currently serves as the Assistant Pastor for Care and Engagement, but has held several job titles during his time.
After receiving his BA in Advertising from Texas Tech University, Matt served as the Director of Contemporary Worship & Multimedia Communications at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Lubbock, Texas. In 2009, Matt moved from Lubbock, Texas to become the Worship Leader and can still be seen utilizing his worship and music gifts from time to time. Along with providing pastoral care to the congregation at large, Matt serves as pastoral lead to the deacon ministry, marriage ministry, and ministry to parents. “One of the great things about my job at First Pres," Matt says, "is that I get to work in collaboration across multiple areas of ministry while also enjoying a broad landscape of relationships. What a joy!”
Matt and his wife of over 21 years, Brooke, treasure their life in Colorado Springs, and take joy in raising their now teenage boys, Samuel, Luke and Micah.
