Matt Hamilton - Youth Pastor

Matt and Johanna Hamilton are married and a family of six, that include four energetic and intelligent boys!... Bryton, Axel, Bennett and Zarin. 

For many years Matt lived a life far away from God, but in 2009 in the words of Matt; “The Holy Spirit got a hold of me, since then there’s been no turning back.”   

Johanna is the daughter of Pastors Oliver and Janice Stillwell. She is a loving, supportive, wife and mother; and where once she together worked with the youth, today,she is the director over our children's ministry as well as our Kid's Pastor. 

Matt's mission for Real Life Youth is for our youth to have a personal, real, and active relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our purpose in Real Life Youth is to focus on the young people within our church, community and nation. We will continue to fight against what the world says is cool; that goes against the Word of God, with what we know is right. For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and Godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are His very own, eager to do what is good.

Titus 2:11-14 NIV

Real Life Youth applies biblical truths to the real life issues our youth encounter daily.

Real Life Youth is focused on equipping our young people for the present and future. Real Life Youth services are a balance of fun and biblical foundation. It is our goal to engage, encourage, and educate our Real Life Youth.
