Matthew Weaver: Connect Pastor
What I Do
I oversee Assimilation, Pastoral Care, and Outreach by connecting people into the life of Vintage Church and mobilizing them to use their gifts for God’s kingdom and the local church.
I was born in Brunswick, GA and lived in several other places in Georgia, but Fayetteville, GA is where I spent the majority of time growing up.
After high school, I went to Shorter College and then Georgia College and State University to pursue a Communications (Rhetoric) degree. After I fought the ministry calling for a while, God made it clear to me that I needed to submit and follow His plan. I began to get my feet wet in ministry during my college years, being active in a local church and getting involved in youth and college ministry. After college, God opened a door for me to serve in a College/Young Adult Ministry at First Baptist Spartanburg, SC. My time there laid the foundation for where I am today, which is a journey I could of never imagined.
God then called me to New Orleans, LA to pursue my Masters of Divinity degree at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. While being in New Orleans, I began to see a different side of ministry and God began to open my eyes to a bigger picture. In 2016 I graduated seminary and got married in April of 2017 to my beautiful wife Emily. I also began serving at Vintage on staff in 2014, and was enlisted as a pastor in December of 2017. I have grown to love the local church, reaching others for Christ, caring for people and bringing the truth of God’s Word to others.
I enjoy the simple things of life like a good cup of coffee, exploring, the outdoors, being on the golf course and spending time with people. I would love to connect with you!
