MATT PELT

 

WORSHIP LEADER

Matt, and his wife, Amie, have been a part of Grow Church since 2013. They have five daughters and one son. Matt believes worship is of the utmost importance and is what God created us to do. It brings us in the presence of our Holy God in a state of freedom and acceptance by Him. Matt has been singing in church and writing songs since he was 15 years old; and has even toured with a band from 2004 to 2006. Matt feels worship is "where we are most complete; it breaks the chains of fear, and heals the broken; it's the lifeblood of a believer, a weapon of war, and song of redemption; it's the natural response to a God of love - to the One who saves and continues to save."
