Matt Gilbert was raised in California and moved to Washington in 1993. He and his wife, Jennie, were married in 1996 and have three wonderful children. They have been members at Lake Tapps since 2001 and have participated in many facets of ministry during their time here. Matt is a lieutenant at East Pierce Fire & Rescue. Their whole family is very active at Lake Tapps with Jennie teaching a couple of mornings a week at Lake Tapps Christian Preschool and all three kids (Katie, Jonathon and Nathaniel), serving as leaders with the middle school ministry, J12 and children’s ministry. The family enjoys having friends over to play games and try to sneak in little family outings as their schedule allows.
