Matt was born in Birmingham, AL and raised in Pinson, AL. At the young age of ten, he made a profession of faith and was subsequently baptized. He attended The University of Alabama Birmingham and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Distribution. Matt met his better half during college, and the two have now been married for 22 years. They have three wonderful children, ages 18, 16, and 15.
Matt has been a member at First Baptist Church in Trussville for over 20 years. He has served as Chair of the Finance Committee, on the Building Committee, on the Personnel Committee, and has been leading an adult small group for the last ten years. Matt’s early career exposed him not only to international travel, but also to the unique logistical challenges that accompany overseeing international projects. It was during this time, God placed a desire in Matt’s heart to serve others and spread the word of Christ through international missions.
