“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

  • My Story

    Dr. Matt S. Wireman is a graduate of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with concentrated studies in biblical and systematic theology, hermeneutics, patristics, and postmodern theory. He leverages his ministerial and missionary experience to build courses that are relevant to students who will serve Christ in the pulpit or workplace.  Currently in the process of planting a church, Wireman is an avid writer and blogger, married to his best friend, and a proud father of four.

    “Ever since second grade, I have wanted to be a medical doctor. After being converted to Christ late in high school and then experiencing Christian discipleship, I changed my major in college and wanted to devote my life to serving the Church. I served overseas with Campus Crusade for Christ in Argentina for a couple of years, where my need for formal education was peaked. I attended The Bethlehem Institute in Minneapolis, MN, where my love for education and the local church grew. After pursuing my doctorate, the Lord made it clear that solid, biblical education was needed to strengthen the Church. Concurrent with that desire, NGU started its online undergraduate programs. I wholeheartedly gave my energies to help people get a solid theological foundation for their various spheres of ministry.”

    Favorite Course to Teach: Hermeneutics. If we don’t know how to read and apply the Bible, we’re lost.
