My name is Matthew Sink. I am a minister at Pinedale Christian Church in Winston-Salem, NC. Welcome to my blog!
The High Road is a place to go beyond what I am teaching each week by making connections between Scripture and real life. It is also a place for me to share random thoughts about navigating this crazy world as a Christian who is “passing through”. Sometimes, that means nothing more than sharing articles, videos, and commentary that I find as I study. Other times, it means sharing my own perspective on what is happening around me.
I typically post three times each week. To make sure you don’t miss my newest post, click to follow this blog. If you find something that seems interesting, or if you have suggestions for this site, I welcome them! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also on Facebook and Twitter(@MatthewSink). I look forward to hearing from you.

I graduated from Western Carolina University in 1996 with a degree in Elementary Education. For 14 years, I taught in grades 3, 4, and 6. But in 2010, I recognized that God had other plans for me. I answered a call to join the ministry team at Pinedale Christian Church in Winston-Salem, NC. As an Associate Minister, my duties include Adult Discipleship, Singles Ministry, Family Ministry. I am also part of the preaching team.
Writing is also a big part of my ministry. In addition to this blog, I have authored several articles. Next year, my first book, A MAP FOR THE MIDDLE will be published by Ambassador International. This book is filled with wisdom and practical advice for middle school students who are trying to navigate these challenging years with their faith in tact. You can read about my journey to be published in this post: God’s Patience, Passing Time, And Dreams in Motion – Reflections on My First Book Deal
I have been married to my wife, Tonya, for 17 years. We have three children. We live outside of Winston-Salem, NC.
In my free time, I enjoy writing, reading, speaking, hiking, and sports (both watching and playing). I am a long-suffering NC State fan, just hoping that I will live to see a highly successful Wolfpack basketball team again.
