Welcome Matt Pearson

Welcome to West Frankin!

We are excited to officially welcome Dr. Matt Pearson, the new Campus & Teaching Pastor of The Church at West Franklin!

Matt and his wife, Katie, have three children: Luke (9), Seth (8), and Birti (7).

The Man for the Job

Matt comes to us from First Baptist Church, El Dorado, AR, where he served as Senior Pastor. Before his ministry at FBC El Dorado, Matt pastored churches in Arkansas and Louisiana. He is a member of the Board of Trustees for the International Mission Board. He has also been a member of the Presidential Search Team for the IMB and a member of the Executive Committee of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention. In 2004, Matt received the LifeWay Pastoral Leadership Award.

In Prayer & Thankfulness

We would also like to sincerely thank Dr. Darrell Gwaltney for faithfully leading The Church at West Franklin as Interim Pastor for the last several months.

Please join us in praying for Matt, Katie, the kids, and the West Franklin campus in the coming weeks and months. If you’d like to welcome and encourage Matt, send him an e-mail at [email protected].
