Matt & Lori Lewis

Dr. Matt Lewis accepted the position of International Director of Heart of the Leader in February, 2017. Launching Heart of the Leader around the world is a perfect fit for Matt. His global experience and two decades providing soul care for Christian leaders in sustainable ways positions him well to lead this vital ministry. He is excited to give the next phase of his life to help leaders become and stay spiritually healthy because: Healthy leaders produce healthy ministries.

His wife, Lori serves her local church as a Deacon and supports the family through employment at University Hospitals. When possible, Lori hopes to travel with Matt so her “spouse’s perspective” can help missionaries and indigenous leaders find a healthy rhythm of ministry, family and personal well-being. All three of their adult children are following the Lord in a variety of contexts.

When not working, Matt loves spending time with his children, taking walks with Lori, and enjoying wilderness where ever he finds it. Prior to joining globalLead, Matt planted a church in Wisconsin and served as an overseer for BiC World Missions in two regions of the world. In the last 10 years, he taught in the practical theology department of Ashland Theological Seminary and directed a program for the seminary designed to renew pastors.
