Meet The Twain Harte Bible Church Staff

Pastor Matt Funk

Senior Pastor
E-mail Pastor Matt Funk

Pastor Matt came to Twain Harte Bible Church, first as our Youth Pastor, but after serving in that capacity for 3 years, was then called as our Senior Pastor in 2005 where he has served as a passionate and gifted preacher/teacher of God’s Word, bringing to life the scriptures through his sermons and studies. He and his wife, Kathy are both originally from Canada, as you’ll recognize from their slight accent. Married in 1996, they have four children. Pastor Matt, or PM as he is often referred, thrives on seeing people studying and applying God’s Word to their lives. In an age where many preachers have watered down the Scriptures, PM unashamedly speaks the truth with abandon, considering it a privilege to serve the body at Twain Harte Bible Church.

Noel came to us in 2008, after serving as a youth director and graduating from Southwestern Bible College in Phoenix, Arizona.  He especially enjoys working with teens and seeing them make life-changing decisions for Christ. His goal is to bring them to a realization that their relationship with Christ must be their own and must be growing.
