Matt came to East TN from near St. Louis, MO and graduated from the Moody Bible Institute with a Bachelors Degree in Missionary Aviation in 2002. It was during his time here in school that he met his wife Tracy. They have seven children: Gabriel, Bellah Grace, Chloe Faith, Ava Hope and Sadie Love. In 2015 two little girls came into the home through foster care and as of November 2016 Khara Joy and Gigi Peace are officially adopted into the family. His most recent position was with the Carter County Sheriff's Department.
Matt is part of the team responsible for the DRG facilities as well as vehicle and equipment maintenance.
With his love for God, the outdoors, and high adventure activities and his mechanical abilities, he is a perfect fit at DRG. "The Gorge is in a unique position to use adventure activities to appeal to young people. I count it a privilege to work in a ministry using my technical abilities in a way that presents the Gospel to the next generation - a message that this world so desperately needs."
