Matt and Caitlin grew up in Lindenhurst, NY. They met when they were in 6th grade and were instant best friends. After dating for a period of time while in HIgh School, they went their separate ways. Matt and Caity reunited in 2008. Matt was active in his church after giving his life to the Lord at the age of 21. He introduced Caity to the possibilities of a Christ-centered life and she accepted Jesus as her Lord and savior soon after.
Matt and Caity have been members of East Gate Church since 2012. They live in West Islip with their two children, Mikaela and Jack, and their three dogs. They enjoy camping, spending time with friends and family, and being active parents in their children’s extracurricular activities. Through her own life experiences, Caitlin has had a heart for recovery which has led her and Matt to launch Celebrate Recovery at East Gate Church.
