Vicar Matthew Schettler comes to Baltimore from Orchard Park, New York, just south of Buffalo, where he grew up.  After graduating Orchard Park High School, he attended Concordia University in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and then Concordia College in Bronxville, New York, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 2014.  While at Bronxville, he served as a fieldworker at Trinity Lutheran Church in Scarsdale, and then at Our Savior Lutheran Church in the Bronx, where he developed a passion for city ministry.

Upon his graduation from college, Matthew enrolled in the Master of Divinity program at Concordia Theological Seminary (CTS) in Fort Wayne, Indiana. His fieldwork was served at Clear Lake Lutheran Church in Fremont, Indiana.  After his first year at CTS, he came down to Baltimore to serve a summer vicarage at Martini Lutheran Church, where he served in varying capacities at five local Lutheran congregations – Martini, Redeemer, St. Thomas, Christ, and Nazareth.

Alongside his duties at Immanuel, Matthew is also serving at Lutheran Mission Society on Wednesdays at the Fells Point Compassion Center, and on Saturdays at Immanuel’s own Compassion Center.

Vicar Matthew is excited to serve his vicarage year at Immanuel, and looking forward to the ministry opportunities in the Charm City.
