Pastor Matt and his wife Katie have been married since 2001 and have four children, Juliet, Caleb, Josiah and Nathanael. While Katie is native born from Nebraska, Matt is originally from Australia. Matt and Katie met in Australia while on an evangelistic mission trip during the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. Pastor Matt now calls the United States of America home and has been a proud U.S. citizen since 2007. Matt, through a powerful conversion, came to faith in Jesus Christ at the age of 24 and has never looked back. Matt loves to share his testimony which illuminates the love of God. Diving right into service, study and ministry, Matt has been involved in children's ministry, youth ministry and more recently has been pastoring Missouri churches for over 14 years. As a pastime, Matt enjoys the outdoors and hunting in various seasons especially Whitetail Deer. Katie operates a home chidcare, while continuous needs of the family keeps her very busy. In addition, Katie is a constant encouragement to Matt in his role. Pastor Matt and Katie are very thankful to God for His continuous guidance and are blessed to call Ashland home and Ashland Baptist Church their spiritual family.
