Matt Goebel graduated with undergraduate degrees in physics and religion and began working at a church of nearly 3,500 attendees. Over the years he held a variety of roles within the church as a Children’s Pastor, Teaching Pastor and more while he worked to complete his Master’s in Theology.
Matt met his wife Ann at that church and they had a set of boy/girl twins. Matt then moved to the local YMCA, taking the position as their first chaplain. There, Matt and Ann had another child and he began to pursue coaching as a profession, becoming a Gallup Certified Coach.
Based on his years of experience as a pastor and a chaplain, Matt built Veritas Professional Development to help business leaders guide and create cultures that foster excellence in soft skills development and management.
The Center for Congregations is funded by Lilly Endowment, Inc. and is a supporting organization of the Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis and Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
