After almost 30 years in full-time ministry, Matthew Cork has learned to embrace God’s true calling for his life. More than anything, he's passionate about helping the next generation of ministry leaders discover their calling, find and embrace God's strength in their weakness and brokenness, and change the world. Matthew brings a unique and surprising level of honesty and vulnerability, wisdom and radical generosity, and contagious enthusiasm that can inspire anyone.

On most weekends you can see Matthew preaching at Friends Church Yorba Linda or one of Friends' other three campuses across Orange County, California. In his downtime, Matthew enjoys time with his wife and three kids, watching Alabama football, and improving his handicap on the golf course.

Matthew graduated from Azusa Pacific University in Azuza, California.
