is originally a California native. He first came to West Virginia to attend Shepherd University to participate in football, and major in Political Science. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree, he later in life pursued a Master's degree in Worship and Leadership through Liberty University; and his Master's in Divinity Work through Amridge University.
Pastor Matt has been married to Misty Francis for 19 years. Together they have four children: Makenzie, Marah, Mattie, and Matthew. The family has been attending 365 Church since 2005. Pastor Matt first found his love of serving God through running a small group, and playing music on the worship team. In 2007, he was ordained as the Youth Pastor, and became the Worship Leader.
In December of 2013, Pastor Matt was elected as the new Senior Pastor of 365 Church. Still additionally serving as the Worship Leader, he enforces the belief of "spirit-lead" worship, and the undeserved blessings of God's grace, love, and forgiveness.
