My name is Matthew David Morris. I’m an artist, a student, a cultivator of good questions, and a lover of the human heart. I am pursuing a Masters of Divinity student at Iliff School of Theology and am in training as a postulant to the priesthood in the Episcopal Church. I minister in a number of capacities within and among the churches of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon, serving primarily as Missioner for Portland Campus Ministry.
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 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.
