Matt Mikalatos: Missionary, Teacher, Servant

moving the podcast – interview from September 17, 2013

~~~

Matt is just a genuinely nice guy. He has a heart for service and Jesus and I think teaching. I wanted to talk to him about his work for Cru, a Christian non-profit that’s active in 191 countries across the globe. We did that, and then we did a little verbal globe-trotting ourselves! We talk about his foreign travels, how he gets paid to go to the beach on spring break, and the importance of being of service to other people.

Matt Label

“Instead of making myself the center of a ministry…I’m coming in as a servant
to other people and the body of Christ, and I’m saying ‘what has the Lord
put on your heart…and how can I help you accomplish that?'”
