Pastor Matthew loves serving at Grace Lutheran because the congregation jumps in with both feet, on a regular basis, to love and serve the Lord.
When he has down time, you might find Pastor Matthew hiking & camping with his family, deer hunting, or growing fruits and vegetables in his garden with the help of his girls.
