The More Light Presbyterians Staff and National Board of Directors
More Light Presbyterians is supported by a dynamic staff and board of directors. More Light staff are available to visit your congregation or community group, and for individual consultation about furthering LGBTQIA+ inclusion. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or just want to say hi!
The More Light Board consists of 15 persons elected by the membership of MLP or appointed to fill vacancies per the requirements in the by-laws.
Nominations to the National Board of Directors are made by a Nominations Committee. The Nominations Committee solicits the MLP membership for suggestions for nominees and considers both within its composition and its proposed slate of nominees the diversity of sexual orientations, differing abilities, racial-ethnic backgrounds, gender identities and expression, ages (in conformity with applicable laws), synod of residence, and MLP membership categories.
Matthew WebbMore Light Board Member
Gender Pronouns: He/Him
Growing up in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Matt is the son of a Southern Baptist minister and grew up in that tradition, attending SBC seminary for 2 years until his theology evolved to a place where he could no longer be a part of an environment that would not honor the queerness of his personhood. Matt attended graduate school and served on multiple church staffs in Greensboro, NC, before becoming the Director of Music at the Presbyterian Church in Morristown, NJ, where he has served since 2012. Matt taught on the faculties of the NC School of the Arts, Elon University, and Drew University & Theological School in the areas of choral and vocal music, musical theatre, and Christian worship. Matt does reading and writing in the areas of constructive theology pertaining to worship and is fleshing out a theology of discomfort as it pertains to Christian justice, DEIB, and creating systems of equity within church leadership. He is the Founder and Principal Consultant of Reformata, which provides leadership coaching to individuals and organizations. Matt makes his home in New York City and loves traveling the world!
