About Larry and Julie Matthews
Julie and I celebrate 28 years of marriage in August. We were first drawn to each other because of our heart for people during our days as students in The Navigators collegiate ministry of the University of Texas. Later, as we began discipling military personnel in life on life fashion, we saw people learn to love God’s word and become radically transformed Christ followers. For us, seeing military men and women come into the Kingdom during those early days cemented a calling as vocational staff.
Every Navigator’s passion is to help others know Christ and make Him known® where they live, work and play.Through our Military ministry, we serve those who serve our country. We come alongside “insiders,” U.S. military personnel and chaplains, helping them live and labor fruitfully right where they are. 2 Timothy 2:2 says it best! We long to see spiritual generations of military folks teach those who will reach others . We’ve been privileged to serve at Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio since 2005. Our previous assignments have been the Anti-Submarine Warfare Base , San Diego (85-87); Travis AFB, CA (87-90); NAS Whidbey Island, WA (90-94); Kaiserslautern Military Community, Germany (94-99) and US Air Force Academy (99-2005).
