Matt Simpson

Matt was raised on a small farm outside of Gettysburg, PA. He was homeschooled K-12, but don't hold that against him. Upon graduating high school, Matt went to work in the outdoor recreation industry, which ignited a passion for the outdoors that he still carries today.

In 2013, Matt graduated from Liberty University with a B.S. in Speech Communications and a minor in Biblical Studies. Upon graduation, Matt moved to the Blacksburg area to be closer to his family who had finally moved further south to be closer to their roots. Earlier this year, Matt accepted a position as the Assistant Recreation Director at Mountain Lake Lodge in Pembroke, VA. Matt is passionate about ministry and finding new and innovative ways to communicate the gospel to an increasingly disillusioned generation. He is thrilled to be able to serve the Lord and others in this capacity within Northstar. He also loves the outdoors, athletics, playing music, TV shows that aren't too long, reading, food, and last but most certainly not least, coffee.

Matt is the GAP Ministry on the staff at Northstar. Visit our leadership page to get to know the rest of the team.
