Serving You with a Heart for Christ
Cornerstone Church Leadership
Hi, I'm Matt
I’m the senior pastor at Cornerstone Church and I love being part of Eastern Iowa!
Originally from Indianola, IA, I made my way to the Marion/Cedar Rapids area in June of 2010. My wife, Carrie, and I were married in 2003 after meeting at Iowa State University. Eventually, I went on to be ordained in the Evangelical Free Church of America and took a master’s degree at Denver Seminary. We have 4 delightful children – three sons and a daughter.
In addition to serving at Cornerstone, I volunteer as a chaplain for the Marion Police Department.
My favorite part of my job is knowing my people pray for me.
Three things you may not know about me are:
- My family cheers on the Iowa State Cyclones (especially in basketball).
- I love sports of all kinds: basketball, pickle ball, running, football, etc.
- I enjoy fantasy and science-fiction novels, as well as, reading church history. Well, really books of all kinds (click here for my recommended reading list).
