Matt Vanderworp is a recent graduate of the University of Houston where he earned a bachelors degree in Music Education. Born and raised in Houston, TX, his love of the Lord is as big as the state itself! He was raised Catholic, but soon began a life changing journey when he decided to go to an RUF bible study his freshmen year of college. Over the next 5 years his life took a direction that eventually led him to apply for the RUF internship and enter into a life of vocational ministry.
Matt loves Jesus, music, and team building exercises. In that order. He loves to lead worship whenever he can, and he loves to throw a frisbee or kick around a soccer ball. He's so excited to start on his new journey at NC State and in the great state of North Carolina!
