My name is Matt Henry and I am the senior pastor at Friendship Celebration Lutheran Church. I’m thrilled to be in Idaho! I have served as a pastor for more than 17 years in the Northwest (previously Trinity, Oregon City, OR, and Faith, Lacey, WA). I grew up in Idaho Falls and graduated from University of Idaho before heading to Concordia Seminary in St. Louis (MDiv 2004, DMin 2017). My passion and hope for the church is to embrace discipleship of Jesus as our highest calling in life. My wife, Sally, and I met while working at Camp Lutherhaven in Coeur d’Alene, ID. God has blessed us with four children. I enjoy parody, politics and puns—any play on words. It’s exciting to be a part of Friendship family and I invite you to see what God is up to in this place as His kingdom of grace continues to come.
