Rev. Matt Overton

Columbia Presbyterian Church
Associate Pastor of Youth & Family Ministries
Vancouver, Washington
Pastor Matt grew up in Southern California and did his undergrad in History at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and then went to seminary at Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey. It was at college that he met his wife Anne and began sensing God’s call to youth ministry. He started working with teenagers at age 21 and still loves working with them over 10 years later! Once Matt finished seminary he received a call to Northern California and served there for 4 years before coming to Washington. He came to Columbia just over 2 years ago because he felt a calling to serve at a church that was not only trying to reach teens for Jesus Christ, but also doing its best to equip and teach parents how to raise their kids as followers of the Lord. Matt has 2 children who are amazing gifts from God. In whatever spare time he has to recover from the last youth event Matt likes to run and hike in the awesome Creation that the Northwest provides!
