Meet Captain Matt Gluyas

 1. What is your current appointment, and what do you find most satisfying about it?

 I’m the Mission Leader (corps officer) at Noosa/Coolum Corps. I love serving the incredible team and community we have in this patch of paradise. As a team, we are committed to building a web of hope across our community that is Jesus-centred, Spirit-led and seeing hope revealed. 


2. Away from the appointment – if that’s possible! – what do you do to relax or unwind?

A night session at the gym, coffee and a swim at the beach all work for me. 


3. What’s a favourite Christian song, and why do you like it?

I’d pick Dear God by Cory Asbury. Every time I reflect on the words, I am reminded that I have nothing to prove and nothing to lose. My identity is in Jesus; he is more than enough. 


4. If you could have a good talk with a biblical character apart from Jesus, who would it be and what would you talk about?

I’d like to talk to the boy who gave Jesus the loaves and fishes that fed the thousands. I love that he is an ordinary, unknown boy who simply surrendered the little he had to Jesus. I would ask him about how that one encounter shifted the trajectory of his life.


5. If you were talking to a group of Salvationists and they asked if you recommended officership or not, what would you say?

 I would recommend pursuing Jesus … wherever or whatever that may look like for you.
