Matt Proctor

In high school, Matt was a National Merit finalist who enrolled at the University of Iowa as a journalism major. But after hearing God’s call, he transferred to Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri. Now instead of broadcasting the bad news, he’s proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ. Matt has served as a youth minister, preaching minister, Bible college professor and is now president of Ozark Christian College. He was the president of the 2013 North American Christian Convention and he serves as a contributing editor for Christian Standard magazine. His writing includes two books, Finish-Line Faith and Victorious.  He enjoys reading, cheering for the St. Louis Cardinals, and traveling widely to preach about Jesus. Matt is especially grateful to God for his wife Katie and their six children—Luke, Lydia, Clara, Carl, Conrad and Caroline.

Leadership has gotten more complicated since our “line leader” days. Especially if you’re leading a Christian college in culturally confusing times. It takes a lot of convictional leadership and personal integrity to lead a college which manages to stay both successful and faithful. Matt Proctor is a father of six, a professor, and the president of Ozark Christian College. Listen in on Daniel’s conversation with Matt Proctor about leadership.
