In 1990 Mathew completed five years of a discipleship and ministry training in Operation Mobilization India. From that time on wards God has provided him many new opportunities. Under God's enabling he handled various leadership roles gracefully and effectively in a vibrant and growing mission movement(GFA) which had a strong emphasis on church planting across Asia. Leading pioneering missions in cross cultural conditions in different states of India has been a significant experience in his life.
in 2003 god provided him with a fresh challenge of heading a new church plant and social organization.besides leading the movement, he took on the pastoral role in nurturing and building up a Church in the city. Later under God's special direction he moved down to Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh to carry out the new task god had for him. it was here that the vision of share and serve ministry took shape and crystallized and God brought together some extraordinary individuals to be part of his teamwork.
Mathew is blessed with his wife Starla, daughter Sharon and son Joel.
