Fr. Matt Rusch & Family

Fr. Matt Rusch grew up in Iowa.  He attended Iowa State University where he received his Bachelors degree and spent time working in youth and college ministry.  After college he spent four years as an adjuster for Nationwide Insurance.  He went on to receive his Masters of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Alabama. 

Matt loves studying Scripture, theology, and church history. As a result of these interests he wrote his masters thesis on Martin Luther’s Christocentric Hermeneutic. He was the Associate for Discipleship for five years at Saint Helena’s in Beaufort, SC before he was called to be the rector of Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Jacksonville, FL.

Matt has a passion for preaching, teaching, and making disciples. In his free time, he also enjoys watching and playing almost all sports.  He is married to Catie, a University of Alabama graduate—Roll Tide!  They have three boys: twins—Timothy and John David, and Stuart.

Matt would love to have the opportunity to meet you and get to know you better and warmly invites you to pay Holy Trinity a visit some time soon.
