Meet Our Pastor
Dr. Matt Shackelford
Pastor Matt has was installed as Central’s Lead Teaching Pastor in January, 2020. After surviving Covid-19 as our new pastor, Pastor Matt is excited to see what God has in store for Central Church as we seek to multiply and mature disciples for Christ.
Pastor Matt’s personal goal for ministry is to glorify God by shepherding well and preaching Christ-centered expositional messages that bring glory to God and joy to God’s people.
Pastor Matt is married to Ashley, and they have four children: Caleb, Selah, Phoebe, and Lydia. Together, they enjoy hiking, movies, and bonfire. Pastor Matt especially loves a game of Settlers of Catan with his kids. Unfortunately, they have become shrewd and competitive traders, who enjoy joining forces to defeat him.
Matt has also earned theological degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary (Th.M.), The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (D.Min.), and he is currently working on a Ph.D. from Midwestern Baptist Theological.
