Matthew Molesky: Lead Pastor
Pastor Matthew and Susan have been married for coming up on 32 years, and have a family of six children. They love weekly date nights together, often enjoying the company of good friends, along with good food and lively conversation. They are both avid readers, and also enjoy curling up to take in either a light-hearted or thought-provoking movie. Their home has long been a place of welcome and refuge, as Susan is remarkably gifted in cooking and hospitality.
After a career in the corporate world, Matthew was called into pastoral ministry. His passion from the beginning has been to help people inside and outside of the church know more of God through his Word, taking one step closer to Jesus. And he considers his calling to feed and care for the souls of God’s people the singular and most sacred of joys that he could possibly be granted. He also enjoys writing, biking, hiking, and spending time with family.
