Matt Hammell

Meet Matt Hammell, Fall 2019 Seminary Intern

Matt Hammell excursion to Africa in July 2019

About 11 years ago, I went on a trip with the Breakfast Club of KPC and began my faith journey. It started when a high school girlfriend dragged me to KPC every Sunday for hot chocolate in the morning. A couple of years later, a Princeton Seminarian (Mark Edwards) led a trip from this tiny church to the remote mountains of British Columbia (ask Leah Hodge all about it!). On that trip, God stirred something in me. I grew in my faith as I volunteered in various youth and young adult ministries. It wasn’t until I spent four years of teaching high school math that I realized ministry was the vocation for me. Talking about God became much more exciting than talking about solving math equations.

When I’m not busy studying Hebrew and Greek that I may/may not use ever again, I like to hike, play most any kind of sport, go to concerts, and binge-watch Cobra Kai. I don’t have a kid, but I do have a one-year-old niece. I don’t have a wife, but I do have a cat (not quite the same, I know). And you can financially support me by coming out to DeLorenzo’s the Burg in Levittown, PA for a delicious tomato pie!
