Matt joined Compassion in early 2017. After several years of active duty service in the Army, he served as a military contractor in Arizona focusing on training and development for the intelligence community. Matt holds a USSF National B License (soccer) and has coached soccer at many levels including NCAA Men’s D1 and, his hardest assignment ever, under-6 boys and girls parks and recreation.

My name is Shaylee Clark and I have worked at Compassion for about four years now. I started on the Events team, and have served as the Specialist on the Stewardship Communications Team for two years. I grew up playing soccer, and played until I was 17. After multiple injuries, my soccer days ended, but the Lord gave me a new passion to pursue: global ministry. Throughout high school and college (after my injury), I took every opportunity/break to travel abroad and serve wherever I could. I even had the opportunity to use my passion for soccer in Costa Rica for 6 weeks on a sports-focused mission trip. In total, I have had the privilege of traveling to 17 countries, primarily on missions.
I graduated from Colorado Christian University, and would recommend CCU to anyone and everyone. I can’t say enough about the people that work there and the professors that I studied under. That is also where I met my husband Ryan. Right when I least expected it, God put an amazing man in my life, and we were married in 2013.
Ryan and I enjoy traveling, being active, and we love our church here in the Springs (if you are looking for a church, we would love to have you join us at Trace Church!).
Ryan and I have NINE nephews! No little girls in the family yet, but we love our boys something fierce!
