Office: 8125223118

Matt Nieman is beloved by youth and parents alike. He has a wealth of experience and education that has prepared him for the work he's called to do at Immanuel:

  • 9 years on staff at Camp Lakeview (that's a lot of capture the flag)
  • Worked as an on-air correspondent for a local cable tv station.
  • BS Clinical Psychology & BA Speech Communication from Ball State University
  • BS Elementary Education from Concordia University Chicago (River Forest)
  • Previously served at Grace Lutheran, High Point, NC, and St. Paul Lutheran, Fort Wayne, IN

Matt is involved in local theater productions and often finds himself paired with a local "star" for performances of "Dancing With The Seymour (sometimes even Columbus!) Stars". 

A favorite Bible verse is John 3:30: “He must become greater, I must become less.”
