Pastor Matt

Hello, I’m Pastor Matt; I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Charissa <kah-rē-sah> since 1987. We have 2 wonderful grown children, Amber & Bretton; a great son-in-law, Tanner (a Deacon here @Avalon); & Gabriel, our marvelous grandson born in the Spring of 2016!!! Our entire family serves God’s Church in some capacity.

I like Navy Football, collect armor/swords, and coach (sports, life, etc.).

My life’s verse(s) is Ephesians 6:19-20: v19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, v20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

That is EXACTLY what I do and intend to keep doing at Avalon!

I am leading God’s people to LOVE people RIGHT where they are… But, to LOVE them TOO much to leave them there!

Additionally, my goal is to start a perpetual TUTIMTUTU Loop…

II Timothy 2:2 ~ … The things you have heard from me among many witnesses; commit these teachings to faithful disciples; so that, they might teach others also… The things you have heard from me among many witnesses; commit these teachings to faithful disciples; so that, they might teach others also… The things you have heard from me among many witnesses; commit these teachings to faithful disciples; so that, they might teach others also… The things you have heard from me among many witnesses; commit these teachings to faithful disciples; so that, they might teach others also… … … Ad Infinitum
