Since 1999 Matt and Jenni have been actively involved in youth ministry and short–term missions all over the world. In January 2020, Matt accepted the role as Area Director for Timber Bay / Youth Investment Foundation, to mentor youth in their local community of North Branch, MN and surrounding areas. Instability at home is a huge problem facing the youth that Timber Bay serves. These youth are loved by God and nothing can take that away, yet their lives hang in the balance. Our heart’s say, “Lord, here we are, send us to bring hope to this generation!” As Area Director for Timber Bay, Matt is responsible to raise funds to cover 100% of his salary and outreach program to minister to youth. To make this happen, they rely on prayer and financial partnership.
