Matt Hamer

Staff portrait of Matt Hamer

Mr. Matt (as the kids call him) became a part of the Northwest team in 2000. He joined us fresh out of Cedarville University with a degree in accounting, but with a passion for children’s ministry.

Matt’s greatest joy comes from teaching the Bible to kids. Whether it’s on a Sunday morning in Kid City, during council time at Awana, or during Vacation Bible School, Matt has a knack for teaching kids the amazing truths found in scripture.

As a self-professed “tech-geek,” Matt also helps keep all the computers and audio/visual equipment in the church running smoothly.
