Matthew Blackwell

Originally from Rochester, NY, Matthew joined the Foundation in February 2021. He completed his undergraduate work at Olivet Nazarene University, graduating in 2017 with a B.S. in Pastoral Ministry.

He was serving as an associate pastor in Marietta, Ohio when Christ began calling him towards correctional chaplaincy. In order to meet the education requirements for his new vocation, Matthew relocated to the Kansas City area to complete a Master of Divinity degree at Nazarene Theological Seminary. While school is his primary focus, he is eager for his future service and ministry.

When he is not studying or working, Matthew is very enthusiastic about health and fitness. In addition to working out, his appreciation for books and film has made him somewhat of a trivia buff. One of his lifelong goals is to appear on Jeopardy someday.
