Meet Rev. Matt
Matt’s a Minister of the Word with the UCA. As a MoW, Matt is committed to the responsibilities of preaching the Gospel, administering the sacraments, and exercising pastoral care so that all may be equipped for their particular ministries, thus maintaining the apostolic witness to Christ in the Church. Ministers of the Word have a particular responsibility for safeguarding the unity of the body of Christ. Ministers exercise their responsibility to Christ and the church by supervising and empowering the general ministry of the church at the congregational and community level. As a minister, Matt is passionate about discipleship. Questions about how we as disciples are called to live our lives and experience our faith are what drive him in teaching and preaching.
In his spare time, Matt enjoys table top games, drone photography, and spending time with his family.
Matt sits on the Synod Ecumenical Relationship Committee and represents the Uniting Church on the executive of Queensland Churches Together.
