Pastor Matt Riddle was born and raised in sunny, central California.  He went to college at California State University, Stanislaus, where he studied as a history major.  In 2003, he graduated with the hopes of becoming a high school history teacher.

He met his wife, Tracey, at a Bible study that they both were attending during their college years.  They were were married in April of 2004, exactly two years from their first date!  They have been blessed with four wonderful children: Lukas, Madilynn, Anna and Gavin.

Pastor Matt came to Noordeloos CRC right out of seminary and has been our Senior Pastor since his ordination in September 2013.  He received his MDiv from Calvin Theological Seminary in May of that same year.  Before moving to Michigan, he served in full-time ministry for six years in the areas of youth, young adults, and worship ministry.

No, Pastor Matt doesn’t surf (unless you mean on his iPad!).  His favorite pass time is reading- everything from theology, to fiction, to history, or (even better) historical fiction!  He has a great love for music and has played guitar for a number of years.  Pastor Matt also enjoys an occasional round of golf.  Most of all, he also loves to spend time with his family- playing with the kids, camping, going to the beach, or simply enjoying a day at home together.
