Matthew has been part of the E1COG family for a long time. He and his wife, Roseanna, met here in 2006 in Barb Brewer's Sunday School class. Matthew holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Business and Christian Ministries from Anderson University. Before coming back to E1COG, Matthew had served in Worship Leadership in churches in Ohio, Indiana, and North Carolina as well as having been invited as a guest Worship Leader and Clinician for Camp Meetings and other events in OH, IN, IL, NC, and SC both within the Church of God and Ecumenically. With a love for this community, Matthew also teaches private trombone lessons, plays in the Eaton Area Community Band, sings in the Eaton Area Community Choir, and has assisted with the Eaton High School Drama department.
Matthew works Full-Time as a Driver Examiner. He is a BIG nerd and loves to read fantasy novels like The Lord of the Rings (of which he knows entirely too much trivia). He also loves both Star Wars and Star Trek, the Cleveland Browns, and The Ohio State Buckeyes. Matthew and Roseanna have a daughter, Emma, and a son, Luke.
