Matthew Schunneman, ministry intern

Matthew was born and raised in New Jersey, and is the oldest of 5 siblings. After wandering into years of addiction to drugs, Matthew was forced to leave his home, and was offered a chance at a new life in Houston, Texas. After moving to Houston, Matthew struggled to keep a balanced life while tending to his drug habits. When all else failed, he checked into the Open Door Mission for treatment. It was there that he heard the gospel and accepted Jesus Christ as the Lord of His life. He has been sober and reborn ever since. Matthew's role at Seven Mile Road involves going back to the Open Door Mission to disciple men who were struggling with addiction, as well as facilitating set-up team efforts for the church and being an assistant to the pastoral staff. Matthew enjoys playing music, spending time with the men of Open Door Mission, and learning more about God's kingdom.
