Matt Morrison – Communications Pastor
What I Do:
I get to manage all of the communications at Christ Fellowship, helping us reach more people for Jesus and keeping everyone up-to-date on the exciting things happening around here.
What I Love About Christ Fellowship:
I love the depth of authentic community we have at Christ Fellowship. Our Life Group has become such an important part of our family, a place where we can be vulnerable and walk away challenged. The church is also deeply dedicated to missions here at home and around the world.
How I Ended Up at Christ Fellowship:
We were looking for a new church and figured we would just check out Christ Fellowship. On the way in that Sunday, I told my wife that I didn’t think we’d like it but should at least give it a shot. We walked out afterward in tears and we’ve been here ever since!
Before Christ Fellowship:
I was born and raised here in the Dallas area. I met my wife, Holly, at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, AR (yeah, it’s a real place) and we were married just two weeks after graduation.
How I Met Jesus:
My parents led me to Christ when I was 6 years old. To be honest, all I knew back then was that I didn’t want to go to hell when I die. As I grew older, God really gripped my heart and I began to understand what it really means to follow Jesus. It has been a journey of discovering his grace, faithfulness, sovereignty and unconditional love.
Favorite Bible Verse:
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” – Matthew 6:33-34
(I dealt with a lot of anxiety as a kid. My dad would often read these verses to me before bed to calm me down. They’ll never leave me.)
Wrestling on the living room floor with my boys (Caleb and Noah), making Holly laugh to the point of snorting, and playing the violin on Sunday mornings.
Random Fun Fact:
I’m an avid indoorsman with a deep love for climate control and bedsheets with high thread counts.
