"Citizenship: The Love & Responsibility of Place"
A century ago when newspapers referred to the general populace they used the word "citizens". One hundred years later the most common word used to describe Americans is "consumers". What does this semantic shift say about us? How can we as the next generation of young professionals in Chattanooga live into a proper citizenship that will build on the legacy that came before us? A legacy that has made this a great place not only to begin our professional careers, but a place to invest our love and our passion.
More about Matt:
Current Employer/Title: Director of The Camp House
First paying job: Stocking shelves at a gas station
I'm most proud of: My wife going back to school, after having our two children, to pursue a new career
The worst piece of advice I've ever received is: (Can't really think of one but I remember being told this as a kid and always knew it was BS) - Don't play with the fire or you will wet the bed.
"What's lost is nothing to what's found, and all the death that ever was, set next to life, would scarecely fill a cup." Godric, Frederick Buechner

Ordained in 2012, he also serves as the Pastor of Cultural Engagement for the Mission Chattanooga where he explores the threshold of faith and culture. Matt regularly consults with existing churches and church plants, sharing the story of The Camp House and Mission Chattanooga and helping expand the horizons of how faith-based communities can engage their cities for the common good.
