Meet Pastor Matt

I was born in West Virginia and raised by parents who love God.  We moved to Texas in 1989 (yes, I wish I could have gotten here faster) and it's here in DFW that God's love became real to me and I accepted Jesus as Savior.  I married the love of my life Heather and started working in the corporate world. In 2002, while volunteering at The Met Church in Keller, I felt God calling me to full-time ministry.  At that time, I left the corporate world to pursue a seminary degree.  I graduated from Southwestern Assembly of God University in Waxahachie and began working in student ministry.

In 2009, Heather and I knew God was calling us to a new work.  With the support of our sending church, and a core team of 30 people, we launched Marine Creek Community Church (now called The Creek) in March of 2010.  It has been a crazy ride since then, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

Heather and I are blessed with two godly and lovely girls, and two wonderful sons-in-law.  The ones who have captured our hearts, however, is our grandson and granddaughter.  Being a grandparent really is


What should you know about me?

The most important thing that you should know about me is that I have a deep love for people and a true desire to connect them with God. That is my greatest motivation for what I do everyday.

I love to laugh and I have a huge amount of random movie quotes stuck in my head that may or may not come out in my teaching.  Bottom line?  I want to make God's Word come alive to people in my church family.  I want His truth to be accessible to all.  I want people to feel loved every time they walk in the doors at The Creek.  I want lives to be changed by the message of Jesus.
