Matt Marino

Email me

An adolescent atheist turned priest, Matt likes to drink coffee, talk about Jesus, and will shamelessly invite himself aboard your sailboat. Matt and the love of his life, Kari, have two kids and a dog.
Also on his resume: Basketball coach, history teacher, recovery planner, Young Life Staff, summer camp program architect, youth/young adult director for the Diocese of Arizona, seminary instructor, church planter, consultant, and ballboy for the Phoenix Suns. Each of those experiences has left him more in wonder at the grandeur of the One who made us and calls us home through the cross and empty tomb.
