A brief introduction.
My name is Matthew David Morris. I am pursuing a Masters of Divinity student at Iliff School of Theology and am a Transitional Deacon serving at St. Michael and All Angel’s Episcopal Church in Portland, Oregon. I minister in a number of capacities within and among the churches of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon, serving primarily as Portland’s Episcopal Campus Minister through Beloved Community on Campus. I’m an artist, a student, a cultivator of good questions, and a lover of the human heart.
As a grad student and a step-parent of an undergrad student, I advocate for student agency and student empowerment. I sees my work in young adult ministry with Beloved Community on Campus as an opportunity to provide an interculturally competent and interfaith-leaning approach to community building, grounded in my own mature Christian faith and informed by the context, traditions, and intellectual rigor of The Episcopal Church.
