My name is Matthew and I am the pastor of Saint Paul United Methodist Church in Searcy, AR.

I haven't been blogging here much in the last couple of years. Recently, if I have an idea for a post, I ask the good folks over at Seedbed if they're interested. Check them out. They are awesome. I may pick back up here though, primarily on themes of holiness.


I have been a United Methodist pastor for thirteen years. I graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary in 2003, was ordained an elder in the United Methodist Church in 2007, and have served my current church since July 2014. I am currently a DMin student in the Beeson Pastor Program at Asbury.

I have been married to my wife for 15 years and we have one incredibly awesome daughter.

When I'm not reading, researching, or writing, I'm running, biking, or just hanging with my family.
