The Burketts—Matt, Leah, Radford, and Tysinger—are Greensboro natives. Matt was first introduced to Search in 2014. In short order, Matt fell in love with the relational model of evangelism Search uses and began leading Foundation groups. In 2019, Matt and Leah responded to God’s call in Greensboro and sold their business to come on staff with Search full-time. Their family of four is always on the go and makes use of their hobbies and interests to invite others into conversations about life and faith.
Why did you choose to join Search? I joined Search long before I became a staff member. I experienced the impact of Search in my own life as a participant in a Foundations group. I then experienced witnessing the impact of Search in the lives of others as a volunteer leader. Ultimately, when Leah and I both felt God’s hand leading us to full-time ministry, it was always going to be with Search. We are a Search family!
