The Mahlas
Matt and Bethany Mahla moved to Roslindale in August 2013 for Matt to attend Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Bethany to teach 5th grade math at the Academy of the Pacific Rim in Hyde Park. Matt was born and raised in New England (Wrentham, MA). As college approached, he felt led to try something new and attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee (where he met Bethany). They married in January 2010 and spent almost four years living in Charlottesville, VA, where Matt worked for a college ministry (Reformed University Fellowship) at the University of Virginia. As Matt began thinking about attending seminary, he was intrigued by the idea of moving back to Massachusetts. Drawn to Roslindale by the wonders of Craigslist, Matt and Bethany couldn’t be happier that they landed in their new neighborhood. Matt recently came on staff as a pastoral intern, and he is excited to serve in diverse ways at our church as he pursues two degrees (Master of Divinity and a Master of Arts in Counseling) at Gordon-Conwell.
