Meet the Jr High Youth Director


Hello Everyone!! I'm humbled that the Lord would use me for His service as the Jr. High Youth Director at Southport Presbyterian Church. It’s an honor and a privilege to be involved with what the Lord is doing in this ministry. Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself and let you know who I am and what I'm all about.

First and foremost, I love Jesus, want to share Him with the world and tell of His great love for us. I often fail to recognize how good He is to me, but by His grace He often reminds me of how much He loves me and the importance of our relationship.

I have been married to my best friend, Danika, for 6 years, and she is by far my better half. We have been blessed with two sons, Levi (age 3), and Samuel (2 months). I enjoy many things, but spending time with my family is one of the best. Other activities I enjoy are sports, playing softball, camping, hiking, puzzles and being challenged. I also serve in the Indiana Army National Guard Chaplain Corps, where I minister to soldiers and their families.

I'm excited to serve Jr. High students and share in their lives as they discover Jesus’ great love for them in a challenging world. The Lord has done many great things in this ministry before me, and by His grace and power alone it will continue to move forward for His glory and for His kingdom.

In Christ,

Matt Smith

“For by grace you have been saved through faith.
And this is not of your own doing; it is the gift of God.”
-Ephesians 2:5
