Matt is the Youth Pastor here at Via Church Lethbridge. He is in charge of both the Junior and Senior Youth groups that run weekly here at the church. He spends his time teaching the youth how to engage with God through scripture and prayer, using a sacramental and liturgical emphasis to guide them into an Anglican expression of faith. They also get to have lots of fun, doing things like ice breakers and wide games each week. He loves this role because of the youth he gets to work with. Matt says “they inspire and challenge me each week to pursue God and to keep my youthfulness alive.”Matt joined Via Church in November of 2018 and became youth pastor the following fall. He is a journeyman electrician by trade but has taken a break from that to serve the church in this season. He has 3 wonderful children with his wife Nikki; Jack (6), Ivy-Mae (5) and Avery (3).When he’s not at the church, Matt is currently a stay-at-home dad with them, running his small backyard farm or doing some form of hunting or outdoor activity. He is passionate about growing or harvesting his own food, sustainability in general, and anything mechanical.
