About the Speaker

Matthew Dominguez is an educational trainer, speaker, and teacher who has studied at Houghton College in New York and Keble College in Oxford, and received his Masters from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Currently, he is a philosophy and literature teacher and adventure club director at Wheaton Academy in West Chicago, Illinois. With over twenty years of teaching experience, he is passionate about the exciting journey of equipping students to make their faith their own by knowing not only what they believe but why they believe it. Furthermore, he loves stories and utilizes great literature to unlock the life transforming power of language and story. He loves to help students see that all great stories, all great authors, all great literature, poems, and films point us to the amazing True Story that the Author is writing-the one beginning in Genesis, ignited at Pentecost, and continuing to unfold today. He desires to inspire students to connect with their essential place in the adventurous epic of building Christ's Kingdom.
