Meet Our Pastor

Dr. Matt Shackelford

In November 2019, Pastor Matt became the Lead Teaching Pastor of Central Church. After the Covid-19 reset, Central Church emerged with a new leadership, vision, and passion to multiply and mature disciples for Jesus Christ.

Pastor Matt’s personal goal for ministry is to glorify God by shepherding the flock of God and preaching Christ-centered expositional messages that bring glory to God and joy to God’s people.

Pastor Matt is married to Ashley, and together they have four children: Caleb, Selah, Phoebe, and Lydia. They enjoy hiking, movies, college football, and bonfires. Pastor Matt especially loves a game of “Settlers of Catan” with his wife and kids. Unfortunately, they have become shrewd and ruthless 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 finishing a Ph.D. from Midwestern Baptist Theological.
