Since Matt was a teenager, he felt called into full-time ministry and since the age of 22, God has done amazing things through his obedience in accepting that call. Matt has worked in many different facets of ministry from Youth, Music, and Creative Pastor roles. Joining the staff of ELC in 2015, Matt has come alongside his mother and father (Founding & Care Pastors Bobby and Sherry Thompson) in order to help build a thriving church on the Gulf Coast. Sara is a local school paraprofessional and helps in various areas in the church. Their desire is to create a church that unchurched people would love to attend. Matt took role of Lead Pastor for Elevation Life Church in November 2020.
Matt and his wife Sara have three sons: Maddox, Brooks, and Ryder.
