Church Overview:

There are over 17,000 households - mainly unchurched - within five miles of the church.

From Matt:

We are looking for a pastor who is passionate about discipleship, ministry to the oppressed throughout Maryland and in Haiti, and Church Revitalization with the vision to revitalize other churches throughout mid-Maryland. Our Church has recently invested in creating a better environment for our children, students, and young adults. The revitalization effort here is in the beginning, but we are seeing people excited about the future, a fast pace of growth, and an existing group of members ready to serve God. I want to invest in you, to walk through life with you and your family, and ultimately to see you fulfill God’s calling for your life. Here are some things that continually influence me in my life through reading or interaction: J.D. Greear, Chuck Lawless, David Platt, Micah Fries, Watermark Church, Nine Marks, Joey Dodson, C. Marvin Pate, Preston Sprinkle, and a wide array of theologians and biblical scholars.

I love to hang out with my bride and daughter, hike, primitive camping, fishing, sports, Spartan Races, grill out, play board games, and go to any country in the world for missions.

Thanks for checking us out, we are praying for you already as you consider moving from where you are to where God has for you in the next season of ministry.
