Matt is the Sales Director of a Recruitment Agency.
Matt didn’t grow up in a Christian household, his childhood was abusive and full of struggles which caused him to battle with different addictions. In 2013 he attended church for the first time. Even though he had been sober and clean for several years he describes “Being in a walking prison of guilt, shame and remorse." A Christian friend had spent over 12 years inviting him to church, and one day he accepted. Although initially cynical he began attending church and a few weeks after, he had a life changing encounter with Jesus and for the first time in his life “felt at peace”.
He has been utterly transformed by knowing Christ and is passionate about bringing that same hope to the poor, disenfranchised and those that walk in the same prison that he did.
In his spare time he is a big gym goer and devoted husband.
