Matt 2

Youth & Worship Minister-Matt Shelton

Matt grew up in Brownstown, IL where he attended the First Christian Church of Brownstown. He went to college at Millikin University and received a B.M. in Commercial Music. In his time at Millikin, he worked closely with an after school program at a local church and saw the Gospel at work in students from otherwise hopeless situations. In combination with this ministry, seeing the weak foundation of faith many college students possessed led to Matt's call to youth ministry and to Noble.

Since joining the ministry at First Christian Church of Noble, Matt has married Abie. Together they encourage the young people (and young at heart) to follow Christ. They shine a light in all that they do. They are also proud parents to a daughter and son.

Favorite verse:​ Psalm 43
