Matt Chamberlin vulnerably and humbly shares his faith journey, including how he has come to see God’s hand in the twists and turns of his life and how he has learned to pursue deeper relationship with God and others through prayer, repentance and forgiveness.
Matt describes gaining the discernment to recognize God knitting his life in ways he never imagined. He talks about learning to look for God’s answer to prayer that might not look like the answer we imagined, confident that God has a good plan for our lives.
Matt shares how he has grown deeper in relationship with God and others through prayer, whether praying with others at the Bridgeport Correctional facility, at NCS meetings or through the Trinity Church prayer ministry.
Chamberlin explains how his pursuit of deeper relationship with Jesus has led to a self-assessment of areas in which he needs to repent and ask forgiveness from others, recognizing that our goal should be to be in relationship with others rather than to “be right”.

With tremendous humility and vulnerability, Matt ends with a very personal and real example of his own efforts to pursue and restore relationship with his children and his former spouse.
