Summer Missionlab is starting in just a few short months! We will begin welcoming over 2,000 students, youth leaders, and families who are getting ready to serve with MissionLab here in New Orleans.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be introducing, one by one, our Summer Missionaries that will be serving with us. These Summer Missionaries partner with MissionLab for 9 weeks of ministry. They are here to minister to the groups and help facilitate easy communication between the groups and the MissionLab staff.

So, without further adieu, let’s welcome back Matthew, who served with us last summer!


How old are you?



Are you in school? If so, where, and what are you studying?

Yes! I am getting a Bachelors in Biblical Studies at Leavell College (NOBTS).


Have you been to New Orleans before?



What made you want to work for MissionLab?

Being a part of what God is doing is always an amazing experience. I get a front row seat to the transformative power of God’s word!


What’s one thing you’re looking forward to this summer?

Getting to know groups and growing alongside them


What’s your favorite genre of music?

Depends on the mood! The only genre I’ve never enjoyed is modern country


What’s your favorite movie?

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King OR Arrival


What’s your favorite food?

Lamb Kabob from Lebanon’s


What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to you?

I don’t get embarrassed easily, but one time I accidentally wore my sister’s jeans and didn’t get a chance to change until a good day and half later.


Would you rather have the power to fly, or the power of invisibility, and why?

The power to fly. I’m naturally nosy, and if I could be invisible I’d snoop in places I shouldn’t snoop.


If you could use any quote to sum up your life, what would it be?

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭2:20‬ ‭(ESV‬‬)


There you go, folks, you’ve just met the first of the eight SM’s who will be serving with us this summer. We look forward to introducing the others to you in the following weeks.

If you’re bringing a group to serve with us this summer, we can’t wait to have you here!
