Deeper Coaching
Coaching with Matt has been a great blessing in my life. Through coaching I am learning that while it's not easy to face vulnerability, it is worth it! I'm learning to look at my past and how my childhood and experiences of my life have shaped the person I am and the reactions I have today. I'm learning to focus on me for the first time in my life and working on becoming the person I want to be, rather than trying to change the people in my life, which is so freeing! I'm hearing and receiving the truths God has to say about me and the woman he created me to be!

Thoughtful Listener Who Asks the Hard Questions
I have worked with Matt @ Deeper for nearly 4 years and the experience has been life changing. In the course of those 4 years Matt has come along side me to process events like the death of a child, death of a father, uncertain times in my marriage, ditching the stationary lifestyle of a mobile one, family issues and so on. Matt has celebrated with me in things like the birth of a child, overcoming family obstacles, realizing new aspects of God's love for me, making unpopular for important decisions for my family, Matt's strength is his ability to listen, ask questions, and help you arrive at a solution YOU can live with. He's not prescriptive and his heart for standing with you on the journey God is taking you on is evident in every call. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone looking for a thoughtful brother in Christ to navigate the torrent of life with them.

Deeper Coaching
I've recently completed a 6 month coaching journey with Matt, and chose to extend it another 6 months. From my experience, the sessions are usually all spring-boarded by the question 'How're you doing? How's your heart?" Matt listens intently, and has an uncannily good skill at identifying when you've smoothed over some part of a story, or buried some emotion, and he gently pokes in. I'll be honest with you. I didn't look forward to these sessions at first, as matt is way more interested in what's going on behind the stories, than the polished shells of stories I was used to sharing. Over time, i've come to look forward to the coaching sessions though, I'm a better person than I was 6 months ago, and I think a lot of that came from finally understanding that the real me behind the masks and roles I play is perfectly loved and accepted, if I choose to just be that real me behind the mask.

Deeper Coaching
The Story Day from Deeper Ministry allowed me to take a day to consider my whole story from childhood until today, and see how different pieces were still affecting me today. Most importantly, the session was able to put words to some very deeply dealt wounds: wounds that occurred slowly over time, rather than just in one traumatic situation. It's been great to have that language to describe my story. If you feel like life isn't working as well for you as it should be, maybe this will help.

Deeper Coaching
Born into domestic violence, later molested and raped all before the age of 13, I lived a life of survival and saw myself as a victim. That was not only how I defined myself, but how I approached life, surviving and minimizing hurt…until my story session with Matt. That day, as I looked back over my life, my story, I saw myself differently. I saw a victim, yes, but I also saw a strong and resilient girl who stayed true to her loving heart in the midst of the deepest darknesses. I saw a girl that wasn’t broken or damaged, hurt and scarred, sure, but not defeated. That day, I saw myself as good, as the awesome and loved human God created me to be, I saw the hints of His reflection, His glory in ME…and I have never been the same.

Deeper Coaching
After several years of coaching without feeling “whole”, I prayed for God to lead me to someone who could help. God, in His wisdom, lead me to Matt, who saw right through my facade to the issues of my heart. His partnership with God in my coaching have been evident, and his skill, wisdom, and talent as a coach have been invaluable. Matt’s gentleness, empathy, and ability to see my true self and call it out have helped my timid, uncertain heart to venture forward in power and confidence I didn’t know I had. He’s helped me to see the hope and beauty in life instead of just the negative and darkness. I’m forever grateful to Matt for helping me develop the skills, self-love and courage to step out of my flesh and unveil and embrace my true self… for truly seeing “me”. What a gift his coaching has been.

Rare find
Matt is the rare collision of personal coaching and spiritually-tuned counselling with an emphasis on story and your heart. With patient wisdom, he has the ability to let you discover for yourself, through guiding questions and direct challenge. He is gifted, and he is right in the pocket. I extended my initial 6 month contract because of the profound impact coaching is having on my life and progress.

I have known Matt for over a year and I can personally attest that God has given him a gift for speaking into the lives of other men and freeing their hearts the way John talks about in Wild at Heart. The story day with Matt and Mark was particularly powerful. In 8-10 hours, I was able to unpack my story and see myself in a new light. Thanks to these guys, I know who I am and what I need to do in this life as a warrior for Christ. Thanks Matt!

Story Day with Matt and Mark was an essential part of my journey with Deeper Coaching. To have these two gifted listeners and teachers spend all day hearing and interpreting my story (in ways I never realized before) was just amazing. To come face-to-face with your own Story is not an easy or "fun" time, but it is necessary if you are looking to move forward in life, beyond the barriers and limitations you've set up for yourself. Sometimes it takes someone else to see your glory...

Deeper Coaching
I've been coaching with Matt E for just about six months, and it has been a tremendous experience for my heart and my life. I was really at a bottom point in my relationship with the Trinity, and Matt has been a firm but trusty guide to put me back on the path to understanding my own story and my own heart. Matt is always quick to understand and give an encouraging word while still holding me accountable for my thoughts and reactions to life. More than that, he has gift for spiritual perception and for seeing things in a way that I never have. It's been a blessing to be under his coaching.

Deeper Coaching
Matt has been coaching me through life for 6 months now. When I started speaking with Matt I felt as if I was in a horrible knot of painful emotions, confusion, and helplessness, meanwhile trying to untangle myself in one of the darkest points of my life. I had gone to church, hired a therapist, started taking the psych meds. Nothing was helping. My mom would always tell me at my lowest points, ‘May God send you some one with skin on’ to help me when I was inconsolable. What she meant was: God’s spirit but in the flesh. I needed a friend. Someone who could paint the picture of God’s Love and Grace for me to see better then I was struggling to see alone. Matt was that friend. God’s Spirit with the ‘skin on’. Since speaking with Matt, God’s light has filled my dark world. Little by little, I untangle with God’s direction and Matt’s care, the knots in my troubled psyche. Speaking with Matt has turned my life around for the better and gives me so much hope for a brighter future. I am honored to be a part of his ministry. May my testimony bring more troubled souls like mine to Matt’s Deeper Ministry and ultimately Christ for complete healing and resurrection.

Deeper Coaching
In the last two years I went through a very traumatic experience. I felt as though I was loosing my way. I was experiencing a spiritual and emotional crises. I was used to having life figured out...until I wasn't... And then I met Matt. He has been a wonderful guide. So gentle and caring, yet strong, who has the true heart of a Father! As Matt listened to my story unfold, he offered incredible insight, patience and understanding. Yet challenged me at times to look at things from a differet perspective. Matt has been such an encouragement to my heart. The confidence and goodness he saw in me were life changing. I would recomend Matt to anyone wanting more...More healing, more restoration, more freedom. Thank you, Matt!

Deeper Coaching
Matt and I did coach together for 6 months. The sessions were a great support while I was in grad school. I always looked forward to our sessions and getting the chance to unpack some of the deepest stuff going on in my heart. One thing I always appreciated about Matt was his openness and allowing me to be authentic. It was important to have someone who wasn't afraid to hear my thoughts and tough questions during a time when I was struggling with my faith. I'm thankful for the coaching I got from Matt.

Deeper Coaching
Wow, reading the other reviews here is encouraging to me too. I've been doing coaching with Matt for nearly two years now. It has been extremely helpful. When I first started I was past my breaking point already - I was loaded down with guilt and anxiety about my divorce/custody issues and was stuck in a very moralistic, performance-oriented relationship with God. I had pretty much lost my mind in that season w/o adequate sleep and sever depression just trying so hard to do all the right things while failing to receive much grace from God. It's hard even thinking of things back then. Matt has been a very gentle, very friendly, very encouraging ally over these past years. He has been helpful with practical insights and steps as well as relating at a deeper level. It has been very helpful to hear him talk about the ways he's experienced things similar to me and to realize I'm not defective, that my struggles are normal, he deals with them too, and going through them would be tough for anyone. Matt also has a great sense of humor and understands the heart of a man. I value our time together very much and I'd highly recommend him to anyone wanting to go deeper/have a faithful ally by their side. Thanks Matt!

Deeper Coaching
During my late twenties, I found myself ensnared within a state of aching, angst, and confusion. Though I had given my life to Christ at a young age and accepted the transformative gift of His resurrecting power, years of poorly tended wounds and unintentional apathy slowly tarnished my perception of myself, God, and life in general. I sought healing through Deeper Coaching because I was painfully aware that I had fallen far from the best version of myself and far from what God had intended for me. It was a breaking point of realizing and acknowledging that I did not possess the tools to do the work necessary to restore the human God saw when He looked upon me. I`m fairly certain that other than deciding you`re going to admit your brokenness, determining who to invite into it with you while you shine a light on your weaknesses is one of the more terrifying things you can choose to step into during this life. Reflecting on previous years, I can identify seasons in which God brought people across my path for specific purposes. I am grateful that one of those people is Matt. It is beyond contestation that God allowed our paths to cross for a season so that I can victoriously work through and conquer past and present hurts in exchange for eternal joy. It has been made abundantly clear to me, on numerous occasions, that Matt is operating within his calling. He has a gentleness and peace as well as an ability to empathetically inquire in a way that is undoubtedly Christ working through him to restore you. I am honored to be a part of his ministry.

Matt was extremely helpful coaching me through a major transition in my life and ministry. He asks thought provoking questions and insightful observations to events and situations that were unfoldin during this time. Matt's coaching will continue to help me far beyond this brief season of life.

Excellent Coach
I've coached with Matt for just over a year. He's incredibly insightful, and very capably has helped me develop in both my professional and my personal/married life. I would unreservedly recommend him for any coaching and/or counselling needs.
