Senior Pastor

"Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

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:

  1. My family cheers on the Iowa State Cyclones (especially in basketball).
  2. I love sports of all kinds: basketball, pickle ball, running, football, etc.
  3. 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).
