Minister

Matthew has been an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church for the past 15 years. In that capacity, he has officiated many marriage ceremonies and baby naming ceremonies for couples throughout New England and New York. As an award-winning and nationally recognized storyteller, Matthew can also craft and tell a story about the couple as a part of their wedding ceremony, bringing a unique and personal element to the day if the couple so chooses.

Matthew has also served as a substitute minister for Unitarian Universalist Churches in Massachusetts and Connecticut, conducting Sunday services and assisting in the planning of those services.

Matthew has also worked with priests, ministers, and rabbis on storytelling techniques and communication strategies in order to help them deliver more effective sermons and connect more closely with their congregants.
