Matthew James Christoff is a convert and was accepted into the Catholic Church in 2006. Prior to his conversion, he was a pluralist, believing that all religions had truth but no single religion had the “Truth.” In the midst of a life-threatening battle with cancer, Matthew had a series of encounters with Jesus Christ that eventually led him to the Catholic Church.
Since entering the Church, Matthew has been thinking and writing about how people can better meet, know and love Jesus Christ. He is one of the co-founders of CatholicManNight.com, a parish-based Catholic men’s evangelization effort that is focused on meeting and knowing Jesus Christ in Eucharistic Adoration, Confession, table fellowship and discussion. Matthew is also exploring how the Church can grow in the effectiveness of evangelizing Catholic men.
Matthew’s professional experience includes working and serving Fortune 500 companies in the areas of marketing, strategy and organizational consulting. He has worked as a brand manager at Procter and Gamble, a consultant at McKinsey and Company and a partner at Spencer Stuart Associates.
Matthew holds a Masters in Theology with a concentration in evangelization and catechesis from the Augustine Institute, a Masters in Industrial Administration degree and a Civil Engineering degree from Purdue University.
He is a Knight of the Holy Sepulchre and a 3rd degree Knight of Columbus.
Matthew and his wife live in the Minneapolis area and have 4 adult children and two grandchildren.
