Matthew’s passion is to help people live out the plan that God has for their lives. Even though he grew up in church and became a Christian at a young age Matthew drifted away from God. He made it so far from God that he became convinced that God didn’t want him anymore. However, he would finally discover that wasn’t true. When he did, it changed everything for him. Matthew discovered that Jesus is better than he thought and wants everyone to discover that for themselves.
Matthew grew up in Red Bay, AL. He is married to Leigh Anne Wright of Brandon, MS. They have 3 amazing kids that are teaching them so much about Jesus. Matthew grew up in church, came to a saving faith when he was 7 years old, and was called to ministry in 2004.
He has served as Student Minister, Associate Pastor, and Senior Pastor at Baptist churches in Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee since graduating from Ole Miss in 2005. By unanimous vote of the Pastor Search Team and of the membership, Matthew accepted the position of Senior Pastor at Country Woods Baptist Church on 2/28/2021.
