Our Team

Nice to meet you!

Pastor Matt and Nyssa came to Hoboken in 2017 with the mission of building a new Christian community. Having grown up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Hoboken, New Jersey was quite a change of pace! However, it quickly became a wonderful place to call home and start a family. They welcomed their daughter, Naomi, into the world in spring of 2018.

Pastor Matt and Nyssa both graduated from Concordia University Wisconsin in 2013 and 2014 respectively. Pastor Matt continued his theological education at Concordia Seminary–St. Louis where he graduated with a Masters of Divinity and was ordained at his home congregation in Grand Rapids. Pastor Matt is the pastor and founder of Mile Square Church, and Nyssa is the worship director.
