Signing in to the comment section was a pain.....but I will endure much pain for my friend Matt.... He loves well, he loved me when I was in loveable, he has that special something, like Christ, that makes you want to know where his confidence and self-assurance comes from. I know him well enough to know where that it comes from....It comes from his dance with the Trinity! Oh, what s dance that is!! Try Matt out, listen to his wisdom, share stories and life with him, and begin to dance again (or learn some new moves)..... you will not be disappointed!!

I'm stuck! I cant figure out how to leave a review when 5 stars is all that is offered ? Matt has such a compassionate and understanding personality that I cant help but feel like I'm right at home with a friend every time I have a coaching session. Matt is so full of stories and practical applications that even the hard places that need gone to are much easier with his help. My life is being changed by Matt's ministry and I will be eternally grateful to God for having his input into my life.

If you are reading a review for a toaster, you hope the person making the assessment is unbiased, right? Just tell me the facts: does it make toast? When you are looking for a personal coach, I think we're all hoping to recognize the potential for something more intimate, more relational, more....Deeper! Coaching: Matt is extremely professional and you can tell he's both built his program while maintaining flexibility/adaptability to meet you where you are. I entered into coaching with two primary needs: first, a series of career issues that left me wondering what was wrong with me (despite knowing how to earn gold stars!), that led to 2) a crisis point in my marriage revolving around my ability to be/stay connected. Matt diligently helped us map our a plan for our sessions, gently suggested practices I could implement along the way, but ultimately ensured that I remained both responsible and accountable for enacting any changes in my life. Each week effectively ran like a counseling session, with periods when either of us would be leading the discussion. There were tears. There were wounds opened up, messages identified, and healing through agreements broken. Often multiple times. Even today! But the act of digging in there was vital to the transformations I've experienced since. In my case, we did an in-person weekend near the end of our time together, and our time to unpack story and really look ahead was amazing. It also seeded the next stage of my journey in working with my local mentors, and joint counseling with my wife, continuing that growth. Matt: I've known Matt as a brother since 2014 and experience his presence through the True Pursuit ministry. You feel a deep presence with him, a shared story of walking this pilgrim road, and a true sense of personal connection. For me, it was 100% logical that I'd go to him for support when I needed it, because there was already a bridge of trust in place. Yet, I've witnessed him reach out, repeatedly, to anyone who is searching for help. He is invested in you!

Story Day
I was met at the door with a hug and "why are you driving a panel van from the airport." The first item was appreciated, the second item started a story - MY STORY. There is something about when Mark & Matt get together. They are past the point of having to verbally communicate what they are thinking to each other, they just know. Having been in the military and having friends I am close with, I get that sort of relationship. Throughout the day, Mark & Matt (henceforth to be referred to as M&M) would ask me "what are you thinking, what are you feeling?" I didn't honestly have much going on from a "feelings" perspective prior to Story Day, but that was a good starting point. Imagine a day where you can tell stories about yourself and not be interrupted or judged. A day where those stories actually uncover meaning behind why you respond/react in certain ways to things around you. A day where you take the stag and get a captivated audience to whatever you have to say. Imagine how special that would make you feel. Story Day with M&M is all of that and so much more. It's personal time to think about your story and put those thoughts into words. An opportunity to share those thoughts and be heard, not interrupted by someone who thinks they know you better than you do. A chance to free yourself of baggage you may or may not even know you have been hauling behind you in the wagon for so many years. These guys get men. They are Warriors who know that life isn't a spectators sport, it's a full-contact brush with death that requires us to be equipped and willing to step into the fray. Because of this, they take the time very seriously and they take what you have to say very seriously. Story Day isn't just an awesome experience as part of coaching session, it is a pivotal life experience that if you allow M&M to be a part of, will change your outlook on your story.

6 Month Coaching
Matt meets you where your heart is. There are no expectations except honesty - from both parties - as you move toward the real you. I was blown away on so many occasions when Matt could tell my "mood" and what was on my heart over the phone. He has a tremendous gift of really "hearing" what others are saying and being able to take everything he has learned and apply it to where you are at that moment. One of the hurdles I had to overcome when deciding to work with Matt, is that I am worth it. I am worth the monetary cost of coaching, the time requirements on my schedule and family and the emotional unveiling of what has been weighing on my heart for so many years. Getting with Matt isn't a joyride, it's a buckle up and try not to get thrown from the vehicle while you're taking a 90 degree turn at 120 miles an hour. If you're willing to be vulnerable and honest, it's a thrill ride. I was telling a colleague at work that I was working with a Spiritual and Life Coach and wasn't sure what their reaction would be. I was pleasantly caught off guard when they said "professional athletes have coaches, but we think we can make it through life without one." Matt has helped change my perspective on my emotions and what they are telling me. He has helped me become more self-aware, which has made me a better husband/friend/colleague/etc. If I could say just one thing it would be "do it." Figure out a way to get with Matt and jump in both feet. Don't keep dipping your toe in the water and thinking about what life could look like, jump in and experience it.

Webinar Series: How to Manage Emotions During a Crisis
This webinar series by Matt is yet another way that he is impacting my life by helping me navigate my emotions. The information shared so personally and yet so clear and profound, clarified many things about identifying my emotions and the value of each. In knowing what I am feeling, Matt taught me that there is a Healthy Emotional Flow that will lead to peace on a regular basis if I learn to work with my emotions instead of letting them control me. As always, Matt shared practical advice about how to do this. The information shared is not only helping me during this strange unprecedented time we are all going through, but I know the changes that are occurring in me because of this new understanding are going to be lifelong.

Webinars and Videos
The Webinars on "How to Manage Emotions During a Crisis VIDEOS" were spot on! Matt's easy going demeanor allows one to examine the tough questions of how we are (or are not) handling our own emotions during this time honestly! What a great reminder and practical tools we can all put into play right now.

There are few people who can wield the compassion sword well while also piercing into the deep recesses of your heart. Matt is one of those men. For me, he is like an empathetic pitbull. That may sound like an oxymoron, but it describes my experience with him so well. He listens gracefully and connects personally seeking redemption and hope in your story, but does not shy away from sinking his teeth into something of value that he knows will push you further to experiencing freedom and true life. When we signed the original contract, my wife and I had hesitations on investing financially into the unknown. So far, I've completed 6 months of sessions and just signed up for another 6 months. This time around the conversation with my wife was much different. It isn't just me that is noticing things changing in my heart. My wife has seen changes in me and, for her, the value of his coaching has far eclipsed the cost.

Deeper Coaching
I participated in two coaching sessions with Matt. I was able to better understand who I am and who God had called me to be. Through excellent counseling, spiritual direction, listening prayer, etc., God brought much healing to my life, heart, mind, and soul. I highly recommend Matt for coaching - it will not disappoint.

Deeper Coaching
Strengths Session After 12 years of great success in what seemed to be my lifetime career, I've found myself unexpectedly bored, uninterested, disengaged and disappointed. At the same time, I've entered into marriage and am learning to truly understand my wife, myself and to navigate our marriage and the path God has for us. I decided to have a Strengths Session with Matt in the hopes that it would help me figure out what is going on with my career. I have to say, I found the session to be so much more helpful than I could have guessed. Matt listened to my story in the context of my strengths and was able to quickly give me some extremely useful insights into what may be happening that has caused me to feel the way I do. While that was the main reason I went to the session, Matt taught me a lot more about my strengths, where/how they can be utilized, how I sometimes operate in their shadow side, and how they are a lens into how I view the world. I've found this to be extremely helpful in my marriage, and my wife and I are scheduling a joint session with Matt to learn about her strengths and how our particular strengths affect our marriage and the way we interact with one another. I highly recommend this session to anyone and everyone, regardless of how you feel about your career. Matt has tremendous insights and will leave you feeling hope, excitement and enthusiasm about the specific way God created you. God has so much more for you than you ever realized, and Matt can help you figure out what that is and live Alive, Free and With Purpose!

Deeper Coaching
I have known and understood for quite some time that just as in all people, my early life events impacted me and can help explain why things are the way they are in my thoughts and behaviors. I have faced negative things about my life; found healing for some and then either rationalized out or ignored the rest. Thought I was good to go. However, it was only during my story session with Matt and Mark that the value of every part of my story became clear. As they guided me through exploring the details of my life (both positive and negative), Matt used his amazing gift of identifying patterns and themes in one’s story to help me see how I was striving for what I already had within me. I was floored to find out that I did not fully understand love and, therefore, was constantly searching and striving for the safety and security that love brings. As a result of this story session, I now know more about what love is (and what love isn’t). They helped me start identifying the hurts and receive healing for that little girl inside me (I could not do this without knowing the hurts and their sources). Now that I can see my True Self more clearly, I can truly say that I am actually loving myself so much more. Consequently, I am finding it easier to love God more and I am free to authentically love others. Now, together WITH God, I keep receiving more and more healing and freedom to BE WHO HE CREATED ME TO BE!!! This is transformation! Thank you Matt and Mark, for leading, listening, teaching, and loving so well!!

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.

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...

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.

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!

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.
