Regional Director Resident
Matt Millar is our very first NewThing Regional Director. After apprenticing with Patrick O’Connell in Chicago for one year he now oversees NewThing Operations in sub-Saharan Africa where we is based out of Nairobi, Kenya.
Matt has been a part of planting a church in both Monrovia, Liberia and Chicago, IL as well as starting a missional community reaching out to athletes while he was studying in college. He has a BA in General Business and an MBA in Business Management, both from UW-Whitewater. There he also played baseball and won a National Championship in 2005.
He and his wife Kui have lived in four different countries (Kenya, Liberia, USA, and Canada) and love the idea of the building bridges across cultures so that the Global Church can work together to advance God’s Kingdom.
