About Me

My name is Matt.  I am the pastor of a small church in the Salt Lake Valley of Utah.  My wife and four kids are the most precious earthly blessings God has given me.  It is my joy and delight to be able to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but my greatest delight is the satisfaction I have in God alone (although He is still working in me on that one).  Outside of ministry, I enjoy reading biographies, rock climbing, hiking, riding motorcycles, and spending time with my family.

The name Christian Joe is a self-description of who I am.  I am just and “average joe” who seeks to honor and exalt Jesus Christ as His follower-His Christian. My blog is mostly my personal thoughts as well as updates concerning my family. Praise be to God for his untold blessings and gifts to his saints!
