The Reverend Matthew Lewis

Assistant to the Rector

Matthew is the son of a naval aviator and grew up following his father’s aircraft carrier from coast to coast, living in multiple states and attending churches of different denominations. Since his ordination he has worked in various Episcopal schools and parishes. He comes to Christ Church Cathedral from Augusta, Georgia, where he served as the Assistant Rector and Director of Student Ministries at the Church of the Good Shepherd, also serving as an adjunct faculty member at the Episcopal Day School. Matthew received his B.A. from the University of West Georgia in Philosophy and Religion (2007), and his M.Div. from Duke Divinity (2011). Matthew and his dog moved to Nashville in October 2016, when he joined Christ Church Cathedral as Assistant to the Rector.

Matthew enjoys hiking, running, reading, and serving. He believes in doing ministry according to the verse “I must decrease, he must increase” from John 3:30. He is very excited about working with parish life, evangelism, and young adults, and seeing God move in the city of Nashville.
