I don’t know Matt Faley personally. I came to know of him through a mutual friend, Arleen Spenceley. Recently, both Matt an I were sponsors of her book-launch party. As I read Matt’s summary on Arleen’s sponsor sheet, I decided to dig a little deeper and learn more about Matt.
As I read Matt’s website and dug into his twitter account I grew increasingly impressed with what Matt was doing for the Kingdom and learned a lot about his ministry. I then discovered his passion for music. I listened a bit, loved it, and said to myself, “I must feature him on our site.” His debut EP is out now. It’s beautiful and it’s filled with authentic Catholic music that appeals to young adults, and well, slightly more mature adults – like me (forever young at heart).
I know you’ll enjoy his music as I have as you learn more about Matt Faley here in our newest post in our series of featured artists.
Matt Faley works full-time in Catholic young adult ministry and uses this platform to share the gifts and talents he has been given to re-invigorate the Gospel for college students and young adults. He currently serves as the Director of Young Adult and College Campus Ministry for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and has been in full-time ministry for over five years.
Matt is an experienced speaker and musician who brings his energy, authenticity and gift of storytelling to college campuses, young adult groups and parish communities across the country.
Matt also uses the art, beauty and transformative power of music and songwriting to speak to the heart of the Gospel. Just as the love of Jesus is all-encompassing and universal, Matt writes honest reflections that do not just scratch the surface, but speak deeply to the heart of every person. Matt uses the joys, the journey, the suffering and the redemption of his own life in Christ to bring people draw people closer to the story written on their own heart.
