Life is all about relationships—first with God, then with one another. That’s what Matt and Tina want to be about! The Vilseck House is a Christ-centered home-away-from-home for those in the military community and their families. It serves the Soldiers, families, and civilians of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment and the entire Rose Barracks military community, and partners with the Post Chapel and chaplains. Join them for Friday night dinner & study, Saturday activities, weekend trips and retreats, lunchtime Bible studies, discipleship, hikes, Post chapel support, sight-seeing, movies, game nights, etc.
Although Matt was raised in a Christian family, he didn’t understand the good news until after high school when someone explained to him the bad news—that he was a sinner and deserved separation from God (Rom 3:23; 6:23). Through the Navigator’s ministry at Colorado State University, Matt began to realize the priority God deserves in his life. He sees the Christian life as a response of love and thankfulness to God for what Christ has done for him.
Tina grew up in an Army family. She was a high-school student in Mannheim, Germany when she trusted Christ through a chapel youth group led by Cadence missionaries.
Matt & Tina met in the Navigators campus ministry at Colorado State University, married in 1991, and have five kids: Madeline, Jesse, Toby, Bridget, and Dustin. They love having people in their home. They directed the Bamberg Hospitality House from 1998-2013 and began ministry in Vilseck in 2014. Matt is also a retired Army Chaplain.
