Why Spiritual Formation?
Sons of Korah frontman now at MST!
It is with great excitement that we welcome Dr Matt Jacoby, high profile front man of Sons of Korah, to the MST team in 2014! Matt is teaching Christian Worship, Introduction to Philosophy and Preaching, as part of the new Spiritual Formation, Worship and Creative Arts ministry stream.
Outside MST, Matt is a pastor at Barrabool Hills Baptist Church, Geelong, where he has been doing most of the preaching and teaching for the best part of a decade. He tours nationally and internationally with Sons of Korah and has written widely on the spirituality of the Psalms,
including ‘Deeper Places: Experiencing God in the Psalms’, published recently. He also writes daily devotionals for the quarterly booklet ‘Thrive’.
"I grew up in a single parent home. Life was tough at times. However, I know that life would have been a lot more difficult had mum not turned to the Lord when I was a baby. Time and time again I saw God provide for us, often miraculously. He never let us down. He never forgot about us.
I always had a passion for worship ministry and, at age 21, I moved to Melbourne to pursue an internship with my church. For more than eight years I have been part of the worship team and it has been such a rewarding and educational experience. I hope to one day be involved with a worship ministry where the prophetic voice of God is heard and declared in the songs written within the team.”
