Jonathan Dodson, Brad Watson, and I talked a lot about the future of GCD when I became Director last August. We had dreams of publishing more books, discipling more authors, and finding more creative ways to resource local churches. These were big dreams, emphasis on the big and the dreams. We knew it would take a little time and a lot of work, but that we wanted to improve upon our continued goal of publishing resources that help make, mature, and multiple disciples of Jesus. At our board meeting earlier this year, these dreams quickly began to become realities. After much prayer, conversation, and the general angst that comes with several 5-hour white-boarding sessions, it was clear that a needed first step was to improve and expand upon our staff. And we've done just that. Allow me to introduce them to you:
Mathew now serves as Managing Editor of GCD.
He is the author of the stellar A Household Gospel: Fulfilling the Great Commission in Our Homes and writes for several websites, including his own site, Grace for Sinners. You've seen his work here at GCD already.
He has completed over forty hours of seminary work at Geneva Reformed Seminary. He works with technology by day and is married to LeAnn with three daughters. His family attends Downtown Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Greenville, SC.
Mathew's role at GCD will primarily be to solicit and edit articles, work with book authors on their projects, and directly lead our editorial team. His addition allows me to become Executive Director and to focus my time on leading and overseeing the mission and vision of GCD.
Matt now serves as Assistant Editor of GCD.
He is Director of Discipleship at Life Bible Church in Canton, GA and an editor at Credo Magazine. He has a B.S. from Kennesaw State University and is currently pursuing master's degrees at both Reformed Theological Seminary and Knox Theological Seminary. He blogs at Gospel Glory.
Matt has already been assisting me with editing articles over the past few months, and has done an exceptional job. He deserves official recognition for what he's done and will continue to do for us.
Please check out our staff page and connect with us on Twitter. We're excited about what God is doing in our midst! Also, we'd be honored for you to consider supporting our endeavors. We have a few ways you can do that.
