I’m Matt Steen, and I love the local church.
I also love Theresa, and have a pretty significant (unhealthy?) attachment to theWashington Redskins, Washington Capitals, and the Baltimore Orioles. I grew up in the Baltimore area, which means that I am addicted to steamed crabs and Old Bay.
Theresa and I were married on Flag Day, 2008 and currently live in Waco, Texas where I am studying at Truett Seminary. After spending years on church staff, planting a church, and coaching church leaders I started to sense the press of the Spirit to return to school for an MDiv and an MBA. Prior to moving to Waco, Theresa and I had the opportunity to live on Long Island, where we cared for her father, and Baltimore, where we got to plant a church. My pre-Theresa days saw me serving churches located in the New York City area (Bergen County, NJ), and Atlanta area (Lawrenceville), while pursuing my undergrad at Toccoa Falls College and completing it at Nyack College.
I am often asked, what is it that you do? The short answer is simple: I help local churches, and their leaders, better pursue their unique calling.
I do this in three major ways:
- Ministry Briefing: Ministry Briefing is a weekly publication aimed at keeping church leaders up to speed on current events, recent studies, and stories that are relevant to their work. For the cost of a weekly Starbucks run, we save pastors time and energy by highlighting the big idea, and including links for further understanding.
- eGive: eGive is a simple, cost-effective online giving solution for churches. We specialize in small to mid-size churches who recognize the value of online giving, but don’t have the time or staff to constantly manage the system.
- Church Simple: Church Simple coaches church leaders and makes connections between churches and service providers. We come alongside church leaders, help them think through leadership challenges, struggles, and next steps… and then help them take the next step.
