Matt and Meredith are passionate about sharing the gospel and their lives with the military community stationed at Fort Drum. As a prior military family, they are keenly aware of the challenges faced by service members and their families. They desire to create a welcoming community for service members and their families to hear and respond to the gospel, grow in their relationships with Christ, develop meaningful relationships with others, and equip them to reach the nations for Christ.
Matt grew up in a Christian home and accepted the Lord at eight years old. Since then, he has continued to grow in his understanding of what it means to be saved by grace through faith and not by works, and he is passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with others.
Meredith also grew up in a Christian home and came to know Christ at an early age. Her journey with the Lord has led her to a deeper understanding of her own brokenness and a greater understanding of God’s grace and love. She continues to grow in freedom in Christ and longs for others to experience it as well.
Matt grew up in Pennsylvania, and Meredith comes from Indiana. They met at Wheaton College where Matt was enrolled in ROTC. Upon graduation, they married and began their adventure as an Army family, adding six children along the way: Emma, Grace, Jacob, Anna, Chloe, and Caleb. Their kids have grown up in the Army community, wholeheartedly experiencing the challenges and benefits that entails, while homeschooling in various locations throughout the U.S. and Germany. After Matt’s retirement, the family relocated to the North Country. This was their first duty station, and they are thrilled to be serving in the very same home the Lord used in their lives so many years ago.
