Matt Fortunato, pastor

Here is Matt with his wife Becky, along with (right to left) Jordyn (5), Matthias (7/31/17), Gracie (11), and Bella (8). We launched this ministry with a home Bible study in August of 2015. From the earliest stages of prayer and planning, this ministry has been in partnership with Anchored in Truth Ministries , Grace Life Church of the Shoals , AL, and Shelbyville Mills Baptist Church , TN. We've recently partnered with the North American Mission Board also. God has been good to grant us these Bible-focused, Gospel-centered relationships.

Matt was saved in 2002 during a sermon on the death of Jesus. He and Becky responded to a call into ministry in 2005. Matt has been preaching and teaching the Bible since 2006. He has a Bachelors in ministry, Masters of divinity, and is currently a PhD candidate in Christian theology (Lord willing, graduating in May, 2018). His heart is to help people find and thrive in healthy, biblical churches.

His favorite hobby is playing pick-up basketball. Nowadays that is pretty much limited to the LA Fitness in Easton, PA. You are officially invited to come by for a game or shoot-around. He also loves reading, writing, and playing outside with his children.

His basic ministry goal is to help people walk in grace -- that they would not live as if God's favor needs to be (or can be!) earned or deserved. It can only be recieved through faith in Jesus Christ. For this reason, preaching and teaching about the person and work of Jesus is the centerpiece of his ministry. He regularly and gladly tell us, "Church is not about you." As soon as church is about "us," rather than God, it is no longer church.

Matt and Becky have purposed to establish a healthy, biblical local church in the community. Church has become a lot of things that it should not be. But there is such a thing as a true and healthy church. They DO EXIST! And they are a great blessing and encouragement, not a burden.
