Living out the Gospel in the world today is seen as counter-cultural, radical, or even a bit dangerous. But hasn’t this always been the case? Has anything changed from the way the early Church struggled and celebrated? From the experience of conversion in the face of persecution to the missionary journeys that call us beyond our comfort zones we have more in common with the first century followers of Jesus than we may realize. Join us this semester as we experience the “dangerous Church” from the book of Acts to our present day story of faith with powerful worship, a revelant teaching, and Eucharistic Adoration.

Meet the Team
Mission Contact/Worship Leader
Matt’s first profound experience of God was during 2001 when he attended Sacred Heart Boys’ Retreat #60. Unfortunately, the “seed fell on rocky soil AND thorns grew up and choked it.” His faith was shallow and the lures of the world were too much for him to handle so years of internal misery followed. Then, God cut deeper into the soil of his soul when he attended Steubenville on the Bayou in June 2008. Since then, he has an undying passion for sharing the Gospel message and Eucharistic Adoration. He is married to his incredible wife Danielle, and they have 4 children (Elise, Truitt, Cohen, and Declan).
