We are pleased to announce the arrival of the camps new Director of Youth Ministries, Matt Woll. Matt’s experience is in maximizing scalable ministry leadership systems, and is joining the team to help develop the camp’s 12-month youth ministry and internship programs. Prior to SAMBICA, Matt served as Executive Pastor at SouthLake Church in South Portland Oregon, served for 4 years on the executive leadership team at EastLake Community Church in greater Seattle, WA (seeing the church grow from 1,000 to 5,000 attenders during his time there).
Prior to working in vocational ministry, Matt spent 6 years as a touring and studio musician, earning a gold record for his work with BEC Recording Artist Jeremy Camp. Matt has also served as modern music director at First Presbyterian Church of Bellevue, and as youth and music director at Christ the King Community Church in Bellingham, WA.
He’s been married to his wife Wendy for 16 years, and loves music, movies, and playing/coaching sports with his two kids Cooper (10), and Ava (7). We are thrilled to have Matt join the team as we continue to focus on inspiring youth to a relationship with Jesus Christ … or as my friend called it; the Jesus rescue mission.
