Rev. Matthew Benz-Whittington and his family, Bethany and Leo.
Matthew and his family, Bethany, son Leo and daughter Georgia are so excited to join the Highland Presbyterian Church family! Before coming to Maryville they spent three years in Longmont, CO and had a great adventure out west, but felt God was calling them back to their southern roots. Matthew is a native Tennessean; born and raised in Memphis and attended UT Chattanooga, earning a degree in religion. Bethany was born in Morristown, TN and was raised outside of Atlanta, GA.
Matthew began with the congregation of Highland in July of 2020 and looks forward to many good years of ministry together.
Matthew has experience serving in church camps, hospital chaplaincy, and various sized congregations. Youth ministry and service to others are places where he has found much joy in my ministry.
