Elder Kip Matkins

After growing up and operating the family farm and ranch near Sturgis, I retired in 2006, at which time my wife, Linda, and I moved to Rapid City.  We have one daughter and one son.

Education:  Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural Engineering and a Master’s in Agricultural Economics.

Community service consists of 18 years on a local Cenex Cooperative board and four years with the Conservation District board.  I served a number of years on the local Crop Improvement Association board and 12 years on the State CIA board.

I was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Sturgis, serving at times as deacon and elder.  My wife and I were called to more orthodox preaching and teaching, which we found at Grace Reformed Church in Rapid City in 2009.  I became an elder in 2015.
