Pastor Matt Walters has been in the pastorate for nearly 30 years. He began pastoring on the Ute Mountain Tribe Reservation in the mountains of Colorado, cutting his teeth in the ministry and watching God do many great things. God would later lead him to Greeley, Colorado where he spent over 20 years serving as pastor of the Faith Bible Baptist Church. In January of 2022, Pastor Matt followed God's leading down to Florida to serve at First Baptist. He was officially voted in as Senior Pastor in June. Pastor Matt and his lovely wife Rose have been married for 31 years. They love the Lord, the ministry, hunting, bargain-shopping, and their 4 beautiful grandchildren.
