Pastor Matt Malone announced to the student ministry on Wednesday night that he will be leaving CIL in 2018 to join FCA staff in Sumner County. For 5.5 years, Matt has worked with students and families of CIL, touching so many of us with his passion for God and love for people. While we are sad to see this era of our youth ministry end, we are excited to partner with Matt as a missionary to the teenagers of Sumner County.
Though Matt has gone through a vigorous screening process to be accepted on FCA staff, he will have to raise support in order to go on staff full-time. On Sunday, August 5, we will have Matt cast vision for what God has called him to accomplish in our community so individuals can get behind him by making monthly pledges.
Matt has had a great impact on my three children, so I will always be personally grateful for his influence on my family. I am happy that he will continue to work with my family and CIL students through his FCA position in Hendersonville and Gallatin. Please pray about how you can financially partner with this special man, who is a gift to the Kingdom of God.
