The Author

Matthew M. Anderson envisioned the Running Mate story during the 2008 presidential election. A former college athlete and history teacher, he served seven years as a pastor at Calvary Lutheran Church in Golden Valley, Minnesota. Matt is the campus pastor at Shiloh Christian School in Bismarck, ND, while he prepares to start a new congregation called Surprise Church in the fall of 2014. The son of Minnesota House Representative Paul Anderson, Matt is also the proud husband of Lacee and the father of three children.

Matthew learned the values of faith, family, and hard work while growing up on a farm in the rural town of Starbuck, MN. He is a Crossfit workout enthusiast and coach, a lover of both steak and sunsets, an enemy of mosquitoes, and a student of American History.
