Matt Town – Lead Pastor
Matt is married to Jo and they have three kids aged 12, 8 and 6. Matt joined the team at LIFEHOUSE as a ‘minister in training’ in June 2012 after completing a 3 year BA degree in applied theology and church leadership at Regents Theological College. Matt now serves the church as the senior church leader helping the church to fulfill its mission to become a church of disciple making disciples. Before moving to Worcestershire Matt trained as a youth worker with YFC in the late nineties/early noughties and served part-time with churches in youth ministry and worship ministry. He has also worked for a family business in property development and maintenance. Matt loves family life, reading, the occasional 18 holes and a good crime drama. Oh! and of course he loves coffee – but that goes without saying.
