Matt joined the Lifeline staff in August 2014 after ministering in East Asia for 7 years. Matt served in a role of discipling local believers and working alongside indigenous churches in East Asia. His experience also includes 8 years in sales for a large building materials company, where he learned the value of God using men and women no matter where He places them. Matt’s heartbeat in ministry is empowering indigenous believers to spread the Gospel in their communities, bringing about transformation of lives and families. Matt is excited about ministering to orphaned and vulnerable children and their communities through (un)adopted’s partners around the world. Matt and his wife Kadie have been married since 2001 and they have four children, Everett, Reid, Rylie and Knox.
