In October 1990, Pastor Matthews was led by the Holy Spirit to accept his present assignment here at New Hope. Since his arrival, New Hope has grown by leaps and bounds – numerically and more importantly, spiritually. He has used his innovative style to revitalize existing ministries and his God-given wisdom to implement new ones. His love for the Lord’s people continues to be the driving force that motivates him to labor tirelessly in the vineyard. His spirit of commitment and dedication to excellence is evident in every aspect of his ministry. Like Paul, Pastor Matthews is pressing “toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
To say the least, it is evident that Pastor Matthews is blessed! His wife, Georgia (our lovely first lady), and their children are very supportive like other family members who take pride in his leadership and, consequently, make New Hope their church home.
“To God be the glory for the things He has done!”
