Matt and his wife Barbara have been the Pastor at South Whibey Assembly of God since 1987.  Life has been a non-stop journey of following Jesus.  One of his great desires is that people would continually know more and more about Jesus.  He loves to read books about Jesus, teach about Jesus and talk about Jesus.

Matt was 19 when he made a personal committment to follow Jesus.

After a short time at Western Washington University, he felt God directing him to spend time with Youth With A Mission (YWAM).  He spent the next 18 months at YWAM schools in Australia and Los Angeles.  He then attended Bible College at Northwest College in Kirkland, Washington, where he graduated 'Magna Cum Laude' with a BA in Missions.

Prior to becoming Senior Pastor at South Whidbey Assembly in 1987, he was a Youth Pastor for five years.

Matt and Barbara have been married since June 19, 1982. They have 5 children: Nathan ('85) and Kelsey, Amey ('86) Rocky, Robin ('90), Kelly/Kyle ('98).

He loves spending time with his wife, children and now grandchildren. He also enjoys reading, running, basketball and bicycling.  His favorite Coffee Drink is a Triple 20 oz. Mocha.
