Matt Warren – Teaching Pastor
Matt grew up in Chattanooga, TN and came to Christ as a collegiate. He then graduated in 1992 from Bryan College in Dayton, TN with a BA in Christian Education. After this he then received his MDIV from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary in 1996. He loves reading (authors like C. H. Spurgeon, C.S. Lewis, John Piper, Jonathan Edwards, and more) and studying theology in general.
The Grove Church contacted Matt in 2003 to serve as the Youth Pastor. In January of 2007 Matt was named as the Interim Teaching Pastor. After serving in the interim capacity until August of 2007, by the recommendation of the elders and the confirmation of the church body, Matt became the Teaching Pastor of The Grove Church.
Matt’s desire is to teach and model the truth of Scripture as he leads the local body of Christ at The Grove Church. Along with that he has a goal to build a healthy church that focuses on Jesus’ mandate of “making disciples.” Ephesians 4:11-13 says, “And he gave . . . pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of the ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”
