Matt was born and raised in Stillwater, Oklahoma, where he went to Oklahoma State University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in strategic communications. As a student, he was in leadership with Young Life’s campus outreach, where he met his beautiful future-wife, Haley. They actually met outside of a gas station in Little Rock, AR on the way to a retreat in North Carolina.
After graduating, Matt moved to downtown Colorado Springs for a care worker program with the Dale House Project, a group home owned by Young Life for at-risk youth. He lived and ministered full-time to kids at the project throughout 2018-2019 and somehow pulled-off an engagement along the way. In early August 2019, Haley and Matt got married in Kansas City shortly after he started at Glen Eyrie as the new marketing coordinator.
Matt has experience in marketing, public relations and outreach from previous jobs, and he is eager to invite others into the wonder of Glen Eyrie and what God is doing here. You will often find him listening to music and drinking coffee. He also enjoys playing guitar, camping, travelling, but really anything that includes good company and stories.
