Our Staff

Matt Richardson

Children's Pastor



Abby and I met while I was doing an internship at a church in Omaha, NE. Abby’s sister introduced us and I knew from the first moment I saw her that I had to be with her forever. However the first time I asked her to coffee she told me no! Abby is a Family Nurse Practitioner, she received her degree from Creighton University in Omaha and I graduated from CBC (Central Bible College) in Springfield, MO in 2009 and we were Youth and Worship pastors in Omaha for almost 5 years before becoming missionaries to El Salvador.


We love spending time playing games and having movie nights with our three sons, Charlie, William and Jack. We love to travel and experience new cultures. We enjoy watching football…Go Big Red & Go Broncos!

Fun Fact

Together we have been to almost 20 different countries and we are looking forward to seeing the Kingdom of God expanded in more!! Also, both of us have worked with Pastor Jeff Baker in different capacities in the past, Abby was a student leader of his here at New Life while she was in his youth group and Matt worked with him in Omaha at Flatland Church. He also had the privilege of marrying them back in 2007!

Final Thoughts

It is our sole desire in life to seek after and live in the perfect will of God for our lives. No matter where, when or the how.   We also want to help others experience His perfect his perfect will for them, which is why we feel discipleship is a VERY important part of our call.
