Matthew Smith

I’m interested in how we form communities to love God and our neighbors. I’m frustrated by the way Christianity has come to equal fundamentalism in the eyes of so many in our world today. So, I’m searching for a different way to practice faith and follow Jesus. My desire is to form a community that is rooted in a grace and reaching in love. I live in East Sacramento with Sarah and our daughter, Eleanor.
