Matt became an elder in 2019 and has previously served as treasurer and deacon. Matt is the Plant Operations Manager at Sanford Sheldon. In his free time, he enjoys cheering on his kids in sports, and being outdoors fishing or hunting.

Abe Scheaffer, Elder

The wonder, beauty and scandal of the gospel compels Abe in ministry. Originally from North Dakota, Abe met his wife, Amy, at Northwestern College, and after further professional training, God directed them to Sheldon and Crossroads Community Church in 2004. Abe was greatly shaped by an elder-training program under an EFCA pastor in Fargo, and this sparked a passion in him for student ministry, missions, discipleship and equipping leaders. Abe and Amy have six kids, and they desire to be used of the Lord to launch the next generation into kingdom service.
