Matthew and Deborah are serving with a group of churches in Canada that are working cooperatively to start a ministry training program. The program will pair theological training with practical ministry service in local churches. All program participants will gain real world experience in applying biblical truth to serving in ministry, both locally and abroad. Matthew will be joining one local church as an assistant pastor. His duties will include preaching and instructing program participants in theological matters, as well as ministering to the spiritual needs of the congregation.
