SENIOR PASTOR OF
THE GENESIS PROJECT OGDEN, UTAH
Matt is the Founder and Lead Pastor of The Genesis Project, a church-based in Ogden, Utah that has grown to a multi-site movement in 6 communities across the nation, reaching thousands every week. For 18 years, Matt has served in various roles helping churches and denominations revitalize and reimagine their church planting strategies through an embedded, sustainable, community lens. Matt and his family moved to Utah in 2005 to pursue a lifelong dream of planting a "church for people who don't do church". The dream has materialized as The Genesis Project, a church called to reach the darkest areas of the city with the hope of Jesus. The church operates a full-service event center, community coffee shop, multiple ministry and rehabilitation homes and non-profit community services.
