Matt's Heart for South Harriman

"I see my role as a minister to teach the Word of God to the saved and to proclaim the Gospel of Christ to the lost.  Here at South Harriman, we have a group of people that love the Lord and do a wonderful job at serving Him and it is a great privilege for me to serve along side them."
