Pastor Ari Mattson

Pastor

Pastor Ari Mattson is amazed by a lot. He’s amazed by the natural world and likes to hike and camp there. He’s amazed by his wife and two kids and is working to be like them. Most of all he’s amazed by God’s grace and how a two thousand year old story continues to change lives for the better.

He collected fascinating but largely unmarketable degrees from Pacific Lutheran University (B.A., English Lit.) and the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (Master of Divinity). He came to Martin Luther Church in 2011 and loves following Jesus alongside the amazing people here.

It is rumored that Pastor Ari also enjoys books, movies, and craft beer and he feels strange when writing about himself in the third person. When he feels like it he blogs at arimattson.blogspot.com.
