  • Matt Davis: Student Ministries Pastor

    Matt Davis spent the latter years of his youth attending Pine Ridge with his family. His parents are Tim and Janet Davis and his siblings are Kim, Michelle, Jenny, and Brandon Davis. When Matt graduated from Reading in 2015, he went on to study Political Science and Philosophy at Western Michigan University where he met his best friend and wife, Kylie. During his time at WMU, Matt was challenged and inspired by the evangelism-focused mission of a campus ministry called Cru. After he graduated he interned with Cru as campus minister and evangelist at his alma mater. Matt and Kylie now live in Quincy with their son, Kip. Matt really enjoys learning. If he could become anything, he'd become a polymath.
