71Five Ministry Coordinator & 71Five Connect Director

Matt Sweeney began his career with Youth 71Five Ministries (formerly known as Rogue Valley Youth for Christ) in 1997 serving as a volunteer in the Juvenile Detention Center. In 2001 his status changed when he joined the staff as the Juvenile Justice Ministry Director. In 2010 he married Jan who volunteers as a detention center chaplain since 2008.

After 20 years serving as the head chaplain of the detention center Matt released the reigns of 71Five Justice to take on his new role as Ministry Coordinator. His years of experience and training were redirected toward developing and supporting a new generation of ministers. With renewed excitement Matt now supervises the directors of:
  • 71Five Justice
  • 71Five Mentors
  • 71Five Parents
  • 71Five Vo-Tech

Matt Sweeney views his task simply; ‘My #1 responsibility is the success of these directors and their programs.’ With this goal clearly in focus Matt is committed to several more years of service in Youth 71Five Ministries.

At home Matt enjoys being a husband and dad but perhaps his favorite identity is Papa to his grandchildren. With projects around the house, a wood shop out back, his bicycle, camping and other travels Matt loves life, loves his family and especially loves his Lord.
