As the Lead Pastor, Matt is responsible for the overall vision and direction of the church, which he does the only way he knows how: in team! Matt provides strategy for the mission and leadership to the staff team, so that together with the Elders, Roswell Community Church can continue to live out its pursuit of Gospel transformation. Matt also serves as one of the preachers and as an Elder.

Matt grew up as a missionary kid in France for the first 15 years of his life and married his high school sweetheart, Becky, before joining the Air Force for 6 years. Following his time in the service, Matt spent 4 years in business until he was drawn into youth ministry in 2002. Matt joined the team at RCC in 2010 and has loved being a part of the beautiful community God is building here!

Matt and Becky have journeyed through 25 years of marriage together and have two married children. Aside from spending time with Becky, Matt enjoys many things, from a good movie to an energetic conversation about WWII, to an exciting Philadelphia Eagles victory, but whatever it is, he’d rather do it together with people.

Matt holds a Masters in Theology from Columbia International University.
