Through being born into and brought up in a Christian family, Matt was drawn to Jesus as a young child. He sensed God leading him to vocational pastoral ministry at a young age, and was eventually led specifically to church planting in Colorado while he and his wife, Kate, prayerfully considered where God would have them go after finishing graduate school. In May 2010, the LaCavas moved to Brighton to join the Redeemer Bible Church planting efforts. Matt and Kate have had 4 children since moving to Brighton, and count it a great privilege and joy to have been able to grow as a family here. Matt was ordained to pastoral ministry by the elders at Redeemer in 2011, and was appointed as the lead pastor of Redeemer in 2017. His primary role at our church is teaching God's Word through expositional preaching in our Sunday worship & teaching services, and is also passionate about teaching privately in personal discipling relationships.
