  • Matt & Nadia Lohse

    Wheaton, IL (Chicagoland)

    Jesus transformed Matt's life through the influence of a high school christian club, and ever since then, God has challenged him to shine the love and light of Jesus to high school students. Following this call, Matt jumped into the education field after graduating from Wheaton College and served as a public high school science teacher for 6 years. During that time, he faithfully served as both the advisor and mentor for the Christian club at his school, equipping his club leaders to share the love of Christ. 

    Now, God has called him to take his next "leap of faith" into full time ministry, and Matt's prayer is that the Lord would use this new role to help spread the hope of Jesus to many more schools in the Chicagoland area.  The mission of the National School Project is to coach public middle school and high school Christian club students to be effective gospel witnesses on their school campuses. Matt equips these students and empowers them to use their clubs as a platform to organize gospel outreach events on their school campuses.
