More about Matt

God placed the vision of Elevate in Matthew Moore's heart at a young age. As COVID-19 shattered his lifelong dreams of college baseball, Matthew faced a crucial decision. He could either take the conventional four-year path, which he believed would leave him with a meaningless diploma, a job he dreaded, and a life devoid of excitement, or he could bet on himself by fully committing to the vision of building a brand, traveling the world, and paving the way for other men who feel the call to tread the path less traveled.

Three years into self-employment, Elevate has grown to include over 150 men. God continues to work through Matthew in ways beyond what he could have imagined, connecting men from all over the world, hosting events with more than 100 attendees, and proving wrong those who said he was "throwing his life away" by not choosing the conventional route.

Matthew's passion is clear: to trailblaze, empower, and foster an environment that supports the alternative path for men like him. His goal is to build a brand and a community that serves as a foundation for men who choose to join him on this narrow journey. This path is dedicated to becoming one's best self and fully embracing what Elevate stands for—living life at the highest level.

This mission, as Matthew sees it, is his personal contribution to what is being built. He aims to share a life filled with fulfillment, adrenaline, and purpose, and to exemplify what it means to walk with God.
