On January 8, 2021, Matt was killed in an auto accident. He is now worshipping at the feet of his Heavenly Father. He leaves behind Sarah, his wife, Lucy and Micah, his children. He will be deeply missed.
Matt epitomized Matthew 16:24-25, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it.” Matt sacrificed everything for his calling as a messenger of the gospel of salvation, the “Good News”.
Matt was married to the love of his life, Sarah, and they have two kids, Lucy and Micah who have helped build Rockpile Church and are active in the kids and student ministries.
Matt graduated from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, TX and began pastoring in 1999. He loved Jesus, Texas, being on the lake, good music, drinking coffee, the outdoors, and old cars.
