Matt Thiessen

Director of Development at Jesus Film Project

Matt surrendered his life to Jesus Christ after God spoke to him at a Grateful Dead concert in 1993. Since then, his heart has been for all people to have a chance to experience the gospel of God’s grace, which has so radically transformed his life.

After graduating from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in 2000, Matt joined Cru as a staff member.
