After much prayer and wise counsel I accepted a position with LifeWay Church Resources in Nashville, TN. I will be joining the Church Resources Division as the Brand Manager and Strategist for The Gospel Project.
The Gospel Project is a Bible study resource that invites adults, students, and kids of all ages to dive deeply into God’s story of redemption through Jesus Christ. In every lesson, participants are immersed in the gospel and learn how when the gospel works on them, they become a part of the story, the very hands and feet in God’s gospel project.
This is a solid biblical resource for the church. I have linked to a few PDF’s from The Gospel Project website to give you a sense of the material.

There are a few particular elements of The Gospel Project that are unique when compared to other small group or Sunday school resources. First, the material delivers a combination of story, systematic and biblical theology, and missional application. Moreover, the material is always pointing to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Second, each session offers an in-depth study with discussion questions, focusing small groups and Sunday School classes toward a lifestyle of gospel-centered discipleship. Third, The Gospel Project is designed to unify an entire church under a single Christ-centered curriculum. Separate study plans for adults, students, and kids ensure the proper focus and depth for each age group.
Beyond the material, I also look forward to joining The Gospel Project team! LifeWay has assembled a stellar team of churchmen and theologians.
- The Marketing Department is led by Jon Emery, from whom I have a lot to learn.
- The Church Resources Division is led by Eric Geiger.
- The Gospel Project is led by General Editor Ed Stetzer and Managing Editor Trevin Wax.
- Our new neighbors will be Micah Fries and Jonathan Howe.
Pray for us as we make this transition to Nashville by mid-February. We will miss our church family at Calvary West dearly, but we believe this is a wonderful opportunity to minister to the universal church. Allow me to borrow the words of the Apostle Paul in regards to Calvary:
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

That’s great, Matt! Congrats, brother.
We are going to miss the three of you. Please post pictures of little man often so we can watch him grown. May God richly bless you and yours. It has been a blessing knowing you. Take care and stay in touch. In Christ, Dee Salley
Let me officially invite you to ClearView in Franklin. If they ever get a decent pastor, it will be a great church. Until then, come help us 🙂
Welcome! We’re excited to have you on the team. Give me a shoutout if you have any weird or random Nashville or LifeWay questions.
