Matt Hamilton has been actively involved with Search Ministries for more than two decades, having served in local leadership in Columbus, Ohio before joining the national board.

“God has given me a passion to encourage men and women to live purposeful, invigorated, impactful lives that echo through eternity,” says Matt, who became a Christian in 1972 as a senior in high school. “Search invites you to find life by first seeking the answers to its most important questions and then sending you on a journey to discover the joy of a life lived in its fullest dimension.”
