He is a native of north-central Ohio and a graduate of the Moody Bible Institute, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and the Westminster Theological Seminary. He graduated from WTS in 2012 with his Doctor of Ministry in Pastoral Counseling.

Pastor Matt and his wife Heather (also a graduate of MBI) love to hike in Pennsylvania State Parks, read good books, and play with their four children: Robin, Andrew, Peter, and Isaac.
