Matt Walker

Elder | Senior Pastor

During his childhood years in northern Indiana, God opened Matt’s spiritually blind eyes and led him to repent of his sin and believe in Jesus who is the way, the truth, and the life. (John 14:6) After graduating from Purdue University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering Matt thought he was heading for an engineering career but God had other plans for his life. While serving as a campus pastor intern for a local church in Lafayette and traveling to England on two separate mission trips God changed Matt's heart from pursuing engineering to vocational Christian ministry. In 2005 he graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with a Master of Theology degree and has since served as adjunct faculty at a Bible college and as both an associate and senior pastor of churches in Texas, Iowa, and Indiana.

In 2009 Matt answered God’s call to become the senior pastor of GCC.  He and his wife, Anna, have been married since 2002 and have a son named Grant and a daughter named Grace. Matt's passion in ministry is to reach the surrounding community and the ends of the earth with the Gospel of Jesus. He is a dynamic teacher and communicator of God's Word who strives to equip believers and train other pastors/leaders so that they may, in turn, teach others to be rooted and built up in Him. (Colossians 2:7)  Matt enjoys spending time with his family, and reading about early church reformers like Zwingli, Calvin and Knox - and he can usually be found building something outdoors.
