Pastor Matthew joined us in July 2013 and is right at home in Bergen with his family. He has lived most of his life in the Rochester area, and has an especially special place in his heart for the west side. It was just down the road from us that he met his wife Angie when they were both students at Roberts Wesleyan College. He gets really excited about Jesus, and is passionate about God’s grace transforming our daily lives.
I spent 35 years in public education and knew I was being called to formal ministry several times. It ís funny how God gives you the ticket for the trip and then is content for us to sit at the terminal waiting for the connecting flight!
