Have you been Branded by Jesus? This year's theme is inspired by the radical impact that the gospel of Jesus Christ had on the apostle Paul. He experienced guilt, grace, and gratitude as he was forever Branded by Jesus.

Guest Speaker: Pastor Matt White

Matt is originally from West Virginia where he grew up enjoying God’s great outdoors being surrounded by mountains, rolling hills, and dairy farms. He learned about his sin and need for salvation from an early age and came to full repentance in his late teenage years. Being overwhelmed by God’s undeserved grace poured into his life, Matt began to pour his life out for his Lord. After serving faithfully and extensively alongside his senior pastor for ten years, Matt was called into full-time ministry. Matt has over twenty years of practical ministry experience and holds degrees from Appalachian Bible College and The Master’s Seminary. Before being called as senior pastor to Belcroft Bible Church (Bowie, MD) in 2016, Matt served in multiple churches in West Virginia and also as an associate pastor at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, CA. Matt has been married to his best friend Amy for over twenty-two years and they have been blessed with four children.
