Dr. Smith’s Biography

Eagles In Leadership is a consulting, training ministry targeted to the next generation. Developing young eagles is our passion as we “Encourage Achievement in Godly Leaders by Emphasizing Servanthood.”

Eagles In Leadership is lead by Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, Ph.D. Dr. Smith was born in Wisconsin. He was unaware of his need for Jesus Christ as his personal savior until high school. As a sophomore, his history teacher shared The Four Spiritual Laws with him. There in that teacher’s office, Matthew prayed to receive Jesus Christ as Savior and put Christ on the Throne of his life as Lord.

Changes happened to Dr. Smith quickly. Soon his high school Spanish teacher asked him to help begin a teen Bible study. 40-50 teens soon met for study weekly. At his teacher’s church, Pastor Myron Higby challenged him to consider full-time Christian service. After a trip to the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago, Illinois and Trinity College in Deerfield, Illinois, he began to pray over God’s will for his life. God called him to Moody and Trinity. It was at Moody that Matthew surrendered to the call of God for ministry in a chapel service.

Marrying the joy of his eyes, Melodee Joy, the new couple moved to Southern California where he served as a volunteer youth pastor, as a part-time youth pastor and as a missionary pastor where they served for many years.

God brought about a life-changing step in Matthew and Melodee’s life when the couple accepted the call to East Los Angeles County. This was a time of great growth and development from a leadership standpoint for them. Turning around a dying church in a Hispanic community, the next 11 years allowed them to teach and train countless leaders in the Southwest and Mexico through leadership conferences and consulting opportunities. While there, Matthew earned his Masters of Arts in Ministry in Chicago, his Doctor of Philosophy in Christian Theology and his Doctor of Philosophy in Christian Education in Southern California.

Dr. Smith has pastored churches in California, Iowa, and Florida. These opportunities allowed them to expand God’s Kingdom and reach out with mission teams throughout the United States, Mexico, France, and Israel. He is currently adjunct faculty for California Pacific School of Theology. He has also served as adjunct faculty at California Baptist University in the School of Christian Ministries, Colorado Christian University, Bible Believers Christian College and Seminary and the University of South Los Angeles (formerly Life University).

Melodee was promoted to Glory on November 11, 2017, where she received her reward for life and ministry well lived.

Matthew’s habit of reading the Bible and prayer has been a source of great strength and understanding when it comes to leadership development. He reads the Bible at least once per year cover to cover. He enjoys an intimate, spiritual walk with God, including hundreds of answers to prayer every quarter, and hundreds of new insights monthly from God’s Word (having read it cover-to-cover some 39 times since 1993). It is his habit to label and file each insight topically for future retrieval. Currently, he has some 30,000 plus topical observations from the Bible that are a direct result of God’s intimate work during his devotional time.
