Music: Starboarders

Starboarders chose their name because it refers to the right side of a ship, and they are about turning the ship. Changing the world is going to be a big task, and it takes a while to turn. Established in 2009, Starboarders hope the music they make makes life better. Even if just for a moment. Without anyone listening, this is all kind of, welcome to their story!

Speaker: Matt Simpkins

Pastor Matt grew up at St. Andrew's Lutheran Church in Franklin, TN and served on the staff at Lutheridge while in college at the University of Tennessee where he earned a B.A. in Speech Communication and Organizational Development in 1998. After working in recruiting and sales for a few years for Aerotek in Nashville, Pastor Matt answered the call to ordained ministry and graduated in 2006 with a Masters of Divinity from Lutheran Theological Seminary. During his four years at Faith Lutheran Church, Pastor Matt was instrumental in starting a 2nd campus ministry and bringing a new format and energy to their non-traditional service.
