About Matthew

Matthew joined the Montréal Youth Unlimited team as Camp Program & Facilities Coordinator for Camp de la Montagne in February 2016 after many years as a volunteer with programs at Terra Nova. He combines his customer service and facilities maintenance background with a love for God, youth and outdoor sports & activities. Despite being forced to go to camp as a kid, he has gotten over it and now LOVES camp having returned as a camp counselor when he was old enough to make his own choices. Matthew is excited to be planning exciting camp programs, with his beautiful and patient wife Laura, in order to encourage the youth of Québec to pursue a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Matthew’s Story

My first experience of camp was twenty years ago now but the memories have stuck with me. The counselors and staff may not have seen the influence they were having on me at the time, but their work impacted countless lives, including my own. They saw the hope and potential in each one of us; God does too! He has led my wife Laura and I to serve the youth of Québec and we are answering His call into full time ministry with Montréal Youth Unlimited. My role as Program and Facilities Coordinator at Camp de la Montagne in the Laurentians is to develop a camp ministry that will see the youth of Québec transformed through the love of God and effecting positive change in their world. Laura and I long to see the young people God sends to camp develop meaningful friendships, self-confidence, self-worth and especially a personal relationship with God through Jesus-Christ.

God has given Laura and I, a passion and skill set that we want to use in service to Him by ministering to youth through camp ministry. Will you partner with us so that together we can have an eternal impact on young lives in Quebec?
