Preteen Leader

Matthew was raised in a Christian household, and when he was six years old, he chose to follow. He tries his best to live out his life like Jesus.
Matthew wants to be a teacher someday, and his hope is to teach kids about Jesus and help them in their life. I want to create safe environments for kids to learn and grow to know more about Jesus.
Matthew's education includes College undergrad, and a religion degree: Pastoral Leadership Studies. He is working towards becoming an English teacher in Education. Matthew has also served in VBS and at other church special events where he was able to minister to children.
Matthew has three siblings; both older siblings have moved out, and his younger sister is studying at college. Matthew's dad and mom work and support him in his educational studies.
Serving Since: 2012
Favorite Verse: James 3:8 "But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison."
In James 3, it talks about the difficulty people have in controlling what they say. Often times, we can praise God, yet hate our brother and say mean things. Many people cannot control a single thing they say, and Mathew believes that words can absolutely destroy people more than anything else if used incorrectly.
