Speaker: Matt Hammitt

“We need to move from being men of good intentions to being men of action”

When you hear Matt Hammitt speak, you are immediately encouraged by his transparency and vulnerability as he shares about the events in his life and steps he has taken to become a man of action. Matt has a passion for helping men become better leaders, for families to strengthen marriages and for fathers to be visible spiritual leaders for their family.

While at the top of his success as a recording artist with the band Sanctus Real, traveling the world, winning awards and impacting culture, there was a major area of his life that was not flourishing: his marriage to Sarah. She needed Matt to be the leader for their family and to be present. Out of many hard conversations and prayer, the song “Lead Me” was written and over the years has helped millions of men and families begin the journey towards reconciliation, redemption and purposeful leadership.

“Have you ever seen a garden that was once lush with plants and flowers become overgrown by weeds that over time suffocated it’s beauty? ‘Where is the gardener’ one may ask. In the garden of love and marriage, it’s YOU. You can’t just expect your marriage to take care of itself. God has given you the responsibility to vigilantly care for your marriage in this way and He is there to help.” – Matt Hammitt

Topics that Matt speaks on include: men’s leadership, marriage, family, becoming spiritual leaders and work/life balance.
