Pastor Matthew was born and raised in Kearny NJ and it was here in 1974 that he trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. In 1982 while a senior in High school he surrendered his life to serve the Lord. He began working in the church under the leadership of Pastor Harold Elting. In 1988 the Lord led him to Florida where he attended Trinity Baptist College. It was there he met his future wife Ann Renee Greaves. They were married in June of 1989. God has blessed them with four children, Matthew, Melanie, Ethan and Evan.
In 1995 he became the Pastor of Gospel Light Baptist Church. It’s his desire to preach the unsearchable riches of Christ Jesus and to reach his home town for his Saviour.
