Matthew joined the Bridgewood staff in the summer of 2003. Before Bridgewood, he led worship in high school and college and toured the country in acapella groups and choirs. He also has a heart for the world, doing mission work in Africa, Haiti, and Europe. Most of all, his desire is for everyone to worship God in ALL they do, not only through music. He studied piano, voice, and music composition at Northwestern College in St. Paul, MN and has a degree in Bible and a Bachelor of Arts in Music.
He loves being outdoors, hiking, music, photography, and anything creative.
