Matt and his family moved to Newton in July of 2011. Before coming to Newton Bible Church, Matt served in ministries in PA and MN. By God's grace, he holds a Bachelor's degree from Clearwater Christian College and a Master of Divinity degree from Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Plymouth, MN. In his role as Sr. Pastor, Matt seeks to direct the body of Christ through prayerfully preaching and teaching the Word of God.
God has blessed Matt & Julie with four children, and they love the ministry that Newton Bible Christian School & Berean Academy provide for their family as they seek to raise children who know and love God.
