YOUTH DIRECTOR:  Matthew Crutchfield

Hi!  I am originally from Columbia, SC where I graduated from Columbia International University with a Bachelor of Arts in the Humanities. I moved up to Ambridge, PA, about 5 years ago to attend Trinity School for Ministry for my Masters of Arts of Religion with an Emphasis in Theology. I have three siblings and my parents still live in Columba, SC.

I have been fortunate to have a lot of experience in youth ministry both as a student and as a leader. I have served as a volunteer youth leader for several years in South Carolina, a camp counselor at Honeyrock camp located in Wisconsin, and as a volunteer in Pittsburgh. One of my joys in youth ministry is witnessing young adults experience the beauty and truth of the Christian faith and how the Faith clarifies and enriches every part of our lives. Theology forms the basis for understanding our relation to God and, thereby, our relationship with others. I strongly believe that good theology is one we can experience and enjoy!

I am currently living in Ambridge, PA, (with my cat, Tommy, seen in the picture above) where I enjoy reading, writing, hiking, and learning/competing in Brazilian jiujitsu.



Erin Burns

Hi, I’m Erin Burns. Our family has been attending Greenford Lutheran Church for 10 years, since we moved to the area. My husband, Jeff, and I will celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary this summer. We have four crazy and amazing boys, Logan (17), Josh (13), Colton (9), Reid (6) and 2 cats (Leo & Simon) . I’m an Electrical Engineer by trade, but have been very blessed to stay home with our kids for the past 17 years. My husband and I are coaches for the SR high school robotics team and I’ve been a treasurer for many organizations currently and over the past years (Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, PTO, etc). I spend my free time (what little I can find) reading, gardening and quilting.
