Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit our staff page. My name is Matt Williams and I am the family pastor here. What is a family pastor you may ask? My role at the church is to lead children and youth and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Let me explain my philosophy in how I do that. I believe that Scripture teaches us that a spiritually healthy man leads to a spiritually healthy marriage. And that a spiritually healthy marriage leads to spiritually healthy families. And that spiritually healthy families lead to spiritually healthy churches. With that said, a large part of my ministry here is walking along side of husbands and fathers as we grow in God’s grace to lead our wives and children to Jesus Christ.
Speaking of wives and children I have been married to the most amazing woman since 2008. Ashley is a blessing from God and outside of my salvation the best gift God has given me. We have three wonderful and rambunctious children. I have two boys (Elijah and Nathan) and one girl (Adalynn).
If you choose to visit our church this Sunday my family would love to meet your family and you are welcome to sit with us as our guests during the service.
I have the honor of being the Worship Leader here at Tega Cay Baptist Church for almost three years now. I am currently studying at Winthrop University to obtain a degree in Religion and Philosophy with a Minor in Psychology. I enjoy serving Him through the amazing power of music in sharing the Gospel.
As you join us on Sunday morning, you will find that we are a welcoming blend of music. First, we have Modern Praise music led by the Worship Team. The Worship Team sings all of the songs you know and love from many Contemporary Christian artists. Next, we have our Adult Choir. They provide an anthem nearly every week that you will feel the presence and power of God through the lyrics and their united voices. Prior to the weekly message, we sing a timeless congregational hymn backed by a grand piano. The power of old hymns are as relevant today as they were hundreds of years ago. As the service begins, my prayer for each week's music that is presented is to help you arrive at the sermon with your mind and heart ready for the message. As the service concludes and the Word of God is fresh on our hearts, the music becomes an avenue that allows you to respond to God through personal reflection of the message by praise, repentance or any way you feel led.
The music we lift up on a Sunday morning is entirely molded around nothing else but scripture. My view on Worship Music is the Bible's view on Worship Music. I aspire to mirror Psalm 150: 1-6 with our praise each and every week by utilizing the incredible and dedicated talent that God has blessed our congregation with.
I look forward to meeting you very soon!
I joined the staff at Tega Cay Baptist Church in June of 2017. I have over 25 years of experience in the areas of management, administration and customer service. It is my deepest desire to provide structure and organization to the church office while modeling the servant's heart our Lord Jesus demonstrated when He was here on Earth. I love to serve God's people and feel very blessed that I am able to do so at Tega Cay Baptist Church.
One of my favorite scriptures is Colossians 3:17 "And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
Come by and say "HI".
Here at Tega Cay Baptist, we believe that God has divinely positioned us within a body of believers that we our proud to call our family.
