Rev. Matt Bowman

Rev. Bowman was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. After graduating with a degree in history from the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!), he attended graduate school at the University of Memphis, where he received a Master's degree in counseling. After three years working as an Academic Advisor at The University of Mississippi (Ole Miss), he felt a call to ministry. He received his M.Div. from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, where he met his wife Amanda, who works as a chaplain with New Century Hospice in Farmville. Amanda and Matt live in Buckingham with their dog Raleigh. In his spare time, Rev. Bowman enjoys watching college football, reading, and traveling.
