We will install Matthew as “Theologian in Residence” @GA. Though he lived Iowa for the last couple of years, serving as Associate Dean for The Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Matthew joined GA a couple of years ago because he felt a strong bond, a call to be rooted in this particular faith community.
At his own expense, Matthew would fly into NYC regularly to attend worship and on occasion preach. His duties will include preaching, teaching, discipleship and leadership development. Matthew brings an amazing energy, a deep and abiding faith/witness in the gospel, and an innovative entrepreneurial spirit which is impacting the wider church and will bless this congregation.
He is well known and highly respected across the Church in our country. Welcome friend and gospel partner!! Also joining us that day will be The Rev. Louise Johnson, president of the Wartburg Seminary, who will preach.
