Ministry Experience

As Matt was advancing in his engineering career he began looking for more purpose in his life. As he was seeking God's guidance for what to do differently, Matt heard about EMI for the first time. Through Matt's time with EMI he has met with many ministries. This has instilled in him a desire for the church to be working together, in partnership with one another. Matt has also volunteered with a ministry working with vulnerable children in Uganda.


Matt and Ashley met in Uganda while Matt was volunteering with EMI and Ashley was volunteering with Doors Ministries. They married in 2015 and have 3 kids, a son born in 2016, a daughter born in 2018, and a daughter born in 2022. The Lammers live in Kampala, Uganda.
