Matt and his wife Alicea married in the summer of 2017. He graduated with his bachelor’s degree from Capella University in 2019. Matt grew up in Medford, Oregon where he was a part-time youth pastor. After they moved to Vancouver, he started volunteering with the youth at EBC in April of 2021 and was hired as our full-time Youth Ministry Intern in October. He has a passion to shepherd the students at EBC and provide them with an apologetic foundation so they will be equipped to defend the gospel and their own faith.
