ANDREW MATTESON

Klemtu, BC
Evangelism and Discipleship


While in high school in 2005, Andrew participated in a short term trip to do youth work in a First Nations community living in a place called Klemtu, British Columbia.  Little did he know then that the Lord had much bigger plans than just that trip.  Andrew now leads these youth teams that head up to Klemtu every summer from his home church in Portland, Oregon and lives in Klemtu full time.  After graduating with his Master’s in Biblical and Theological Studies from Western Seminary in 2015, he decided to join NAIM and serve full time.

He has a passion for discipleship and seeing young men grow into Godly role models for their families, communities, and the world.  It’s a sure bet that at any point in time, you could find Andrew in one of a few places: shooting a basketball in the local gym, reading the latest theologically thrilling book, or wrestling/playing with someone’s dogs.
