As our Associate Pastor, Matt Kozma is directly responsible to oversee discipleship and our junior and senior high youth ministry. Matt also leads with the elders, preaches, and helps care for the people.
Matt Kozma grew up in St. Peters, Missouri. While in high school, he sensed a call to full-time ministry. Shortly thereafter, he got involved in youth ministry at his church, teaching Sunday school to middle school students and serving as an intern. In 2003 he went to Liberty University. He graduated in 2006 with a degree in Youth Ministry, and from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in 2010 with an MDiv in Biblical Studies. During that time he served as a middle school director at Rainbow Forest Baptist Church and as Minister to Students at Chestnut Hill Baptist Church. In his spare time, Matt likes to read, write, play disc golf and guitar, run, watch football, knit, and play board games. He has been married to Lachelle since 2007 and is the father of Addyson, Jack, Eleanor, & Benjamin. Matt and Lachelle have been doing ministry together since they first started dating in High School!
