“Matt is a voice of love and compassion for all people. He is an incredible communicator and advocate. His wisdom, experience, passion and heart reflect the grace and light of Jesus. Matt is called and gifted at equipping and encouraging others in their ministry and walk with Jesus. His ministry is truly needed in our community and our world!” Joanna Cummings, Children’s Minister The Village UMC


“Matt brings a deep passion and exciting vision for the inclusion in the church. His experience and expertise make him a compelling resource for congregations striving to become places of belonging and full participation for people with disabilities.” – Erik Carter PhD, Author and Professor at Vanderbilt University 


“Matt was an absolute gift to our congregation and to me as a pastor.  His caring and “meet you where you are” approach to teaching and consultation invite everyone into meaningful and transformative conversations about disability theology and what that means in real life church settings.  I can’t thank him enough for vulnerably sharing his story and living out his faith in the world.” – Allison Gossett, Director of Adult Discipleship, Brentwood UMC
