Happy birthday to me!
SIGN UP for our Birthday/Anniversary Club!

Matt Maher

Matt Maher's career has been one lived in transition.  He moved from Newfoundland, Canada to the US in order to follow God's call to a life in ministry.  He planted himself as a worship leader for a church in Mesa, Arizona.  There may not be a place more polar opposite of Canada than Arizona.  Over the last several years, he transitioned to life on the road as a touring artist and wandering worship leader.

By following God's call, Maher has had the chance to write some incredible worship songs and work with other gifted worship leaders such as Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Brenton Brown, Audrey Assad, Jars of Clay and Hawk Nelson.  Those songs have earned him nearly a dozen Dove Award nominations AND 2 GRAMMY nominations!

Matt Maher's challenge to those he worships with is, "In a post Christian society, everybody is called to be a missionary wherever we are. The mission field has changed. The mission field is everywhere."

Lord, I Need You:  Matt's latest single is about internal submission.  “The whole idea of being dependent on God is just really counter-cultural,” says Maher, “but I think that’s sort of at the heart of the Gospel—the way of freedom is through surrender.”

Family: Last summer Matt and his wife welcomed their first child. A son, named Michael Conor.
