“Everything Matt has done for myself personally, and our team as awhole is truly inspirational. For myself, he has been a bigpart and reason behind me leading a life that Christ wants me to. Mattbaptized me during our seniorweekend in front of my family,friends, and teammates. I knowhaving Matt around has broughtall the guys closer to Christ,which helps each one of us in growing our relationship with Christ.”
Before I met Matt and Crystal I was just like the majority of most church attendees. I didn’t have a personal time set apart in the day to study and meditate on God’s Word. I grew up in church and could name most of the popular characters in the Bible and I could also find most scriptures with out any problem. I had a good knowledge of the Bible, but I didn’t practice it in my everyday life. After meeting Matt and attending Phase 2 and Emmanuel on a regular basis, I first discovered Matt was different than any other teacher I had ever met. Matt has devoted his life to making sure Gods word is taught and lived out. Through the ministry and one-on-one meetings with Matt I feel more equipped and more close to God than ever before. I can honestly say that if it hadn’t been for Matt and Crystal I would not be at the level of spiritual maturity that I am today. I hope to take what I have learned and gained in my 3 years at MSU under Matt and teach and minister to others in some way.”
“Matt and Crystal have been such a blessing to our entire baseball program. Matt has spent countless hours leading our coaches and players in Bible studies each week. His leadership, perspective, and time has helped each of us grow spiritually and closer to God. Our players and coaches absolutely love him!! His Bible studies with the team have meant so much to our program. He does an amazing job understanding what each of us are dealing with and explaining to us what God’s word says. He also takes us out hunting and fishing, which is something everyone looks forward to, including myself! Matt’s “weekly emails” and individual time he spends discipling our players and coaches has been an answered prayer.
“God is using the Jolley family to make an enormous, eternally significant mark on Mississippi State University and the Starkville community. Matt has been discipling me for the last couple of years. Meeting together weekly has been some of the most valuable time spent in college. Matt has invested in my life through prayer, the teaching of scripture, consistently offering counsel and wisdom, and simply the life that he lives. There are numerous others who have the same testimony about Matt and Crystal. Some of the greatest blessings have been going into their home and seeing the way in which Matt and Crystal serve each other, raise up Godly children, and display to guests what it looks like to be a Christ-like husband, wife, and parent. The Jolleys serve in numerous capacities all over Starkville, but my most valuable time is spent with Matt, talking about what it looks like to be a man of God on a day-to-day basis. Many of my tools for ministry in the future have been attained from the teaching and counsel of the Jolley family!”
