He was stationed in South Korea on Sept. 11 2001 when our nation was attacked by terrorists. Thankfully, he was never given orders to report to fight in combat in the conflict that resulted from 9/11/01. His praying mother takes credit for this.

Matthew moved back to his home town of Bushnell, Florida upon receiving an honorable discharge from the armed forces where he worked a short time in the Florida Department of Corrections as a correctional officer, following in his father’s foot steps. He soon found that career path was not one that was meant for him, and pursued other careers over the next several years.

In September of 2015, Matthew began to visit Faith World Leesburg, and in November of 2015 he was baptized in Jesus’ name by Pastor Trueman Hurley and began his new life as a born again Christian.

Over the course of the next year, Matthew met and began dating his now wife, Tamatha Hurley, and they were married on August 6, 2016. By the beginning of 2016, Matthew also felt a call to the ministry. He shared his feeling with his Pastor, Trueman Hurley, and began to help in many different ministries in the church.

Matthew preached his first sermon in December of 2016 at Faith World, and now serves on the ministry team. Matthew took some preliminary ministry courses through the United Pentecostal Church International and received a church license to preach. He is now working and studying to go on to obtain his ministry license with the UPCI.
