Our senior pastor, Matt, became a Christian while backpacking overseas in 1997. In 1999 he joined Trinity City and served in a variety of youth ministry roles. Matt obtained a Bachelor of Management at UNISA and worked in Corporate Banking with ANZ for 5 years before leaving to study at Bible College SA.
While studying, Matt was part of the Trinity North East church plant from Trinity City and this, along with his involvement in Geneva Push, gave him a passion for church planting. On completing his Bachelor of Theology Matt was appointed as a Pastor for the Trinity City 10:30 Gathering at the beginning of 2011.
In 2012, as the need for Trinity City to plant another church became apparent, Matt was appointed the task. The Inner South was selected and plans begun to plant Trinity Inner South in early 2013. Matt is married and has three young children. He enjoys surfing, cooking and golf.
