Matt is originally from Greenville, KY and is the former pastor of Temple Baptist Church in Central City, KY. During his two years as pastor of Temple Baptist, God greatly blessed as they saw the attendance grow from 40 in Sunday School to 90-100 and well over 100 in the main service.
During this time the church grew not only numerically, but also ﬁnancially, in giving to the Cooperative Program, local Association. But the greatest growth that was seen was the spiritual growth of the people. During his pastorate the church baptized more people in two years than the church had previously baptized in ﬁve years combined.
