Assistant Pastor of Missions / Elder
Matthew Joined us as pastor of missions in August 2015. 'GBC' had been supporting Matt and Lorraine and their 2 kids; Elijah and Annabelle for almost 10 years while they served as missionaries to Romania under the mission Friendship International, before they returned to the UK. Following a period of almost 2 years of seeking the Lord and discerning His will for Matt to cross over from international missions to full-time pastoring, We were delighted to see how God so clearly brought the family back to GBC to support the growing work of our growing church.
