Pastors & Staff


Reverend Matthew Burns

Senior Pastor

As the Senior Pastor, Matthew has two roles among us. Matthew shepherds the lives of those in our community by listening to stories and being present in ours. And he helps shape our life through preaching, teaching and leading us into God's Story about Jesus.

Matthew is a graduate of Calvin University (BA in Rhetoric and Communication, Minor in Religion), where he learned that he loved to read; and Calvin Theological Seminary (Masters in Theology and Masters of Divinity), where he learned to love the Church.

Husband and glad father of four, Matthew likes to be out hiking, learning to make things from wood, or on the ice playing hockey. He's pretty sure that one day he'd like to have a dog.
