I met a Pastor’s Pastor while ministering at a skate park in Moreno Valley and he began calling me Pastor Matt. I would tell him that all I am is a sinner saved by grace and highly doubted that God would call me to that high office. As time went on it became more of a burden to deny the call God had on my life. I eventually accepted that “God uses the foolish things of this world to put to shame the wise”. That Pastor’s Pastor, who became more than a friend and more like a brother, went home to be with Jesus and I knew I couldn’t deny the call Jesus placed on my life any longer.
I was ordained a Pastor at Free Indeed Christian Fellowship in January of 2006. I have served as Youth Pastor and most recently as our administrative Pastor overseeing the finances of our fellowship and its organization. I realize that being a pastor is more than occupying the pulpit on Sundays and more caring for the sheep as Jesus would do. I still occasionally have the privilege of teaching a Sunday or mid-week service and with great joy look forward to those moments and continuing to serve the body of Christ at Free Indeed.
1 Corinthians 1:26-31 “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—that, as it is written, “HE WHO GLORIES, LET HIM GLORY IN THE LORD.””
In His Service,
