Pastor Matt is the Senior Pastor and founder of Family Church. He is passionate about teaching people the principles of God’s word and as people implement those truth’s into their lives, they begin to find that place we call God’s best (Is. 1:19). Another area that he is passionate about is being involved with mentoring and ministering to young people, especially athletes. He has conducted many chapels with the local teams as well as the Creighton basketball team, he was a chaplain for the Missouri State football program and has been blessed, through divine favor, to minister at a chapel for the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA.


Pastor Matt also enjoys working out, playing basketball, eating and “hot-tubbing!" He is also a big fan of college football, favoring the Iowa Hawkeyes. He also enjoys traveling, when he has the opportunity to do so, with his wife Aimee and their son Jake. They love to explore new cities and take time to go tour sports arenas and churches.
