MATT SMITH

HS BIBLE TEACHER

“If we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”

C.S. Lewis

This is my 17th year in education and my 9th year teaching at WMC.  As a Bible teacher, I enjoy teaching students about the Bible and helping them become passionate about their relationship with God.  Having had the experience of living and studying the Bible in the land of Israel, I love looking at the historical and geographical context of the stories and helping students see why this context matters.  My wife, Jeannette, and I have been married for 16 years and we have 3 kids.  Corben is 9 years old and Asher is 7 years old and our daughter Ayla is almost 4 years old.  I enjoy reading, being outdoors, playing tennis and golf, playing board games, and spending time with family and friends.
