Matt Frears

Food Service Supervisor

On Staff since 2022


I grew up in Plano, Texas with my parents, Mark and Cindy, and my younger brother, Jacob. I was privileged to be able to attend Wheaton College and graduate in 2015. I majored in Christian Education, while participating in swim team and lacrosse. Our lacrosse team used to take winter trips up to HoneyRock to play broomball and bond as a team. During college I was able to counsel at multiple camps as well as work in the camp kitchen at Pine Cove in Texas. I also met my wife, Rachel, working in a camp kitchen! We have two dogs, Franklin Bones and Guinevere Lake.

After college, I taught Bible and coached lacrosse and swimming for two years at a private Christian high school. While I loved the coaching, the teaching was not my calling, so I started working in the culinary industry to support my coaching. It is funny how the Lord works because I found a passion for working in kitchens and the ministry and evangelism that happens in them. I have worked in a variety of kitchens, from fine dining to brunch, for the past eight years.

I am very excited to be called to serve as the Food Service Supervisor. I believe in the power of food and hospitality to facilitate ministry that can change lives, and am excited to be a part of that process at HoneyRock!

BA in Christian Education, Wheaton College
