Our Church Vision:

IMPACTING THE GATEWAY COMMUNITY AND BEYOND

Our Pastor, Matt Toupin

Meet our Pastor Matt,  along with his wife Lisa and their three boys.
Rev. Toupin was baptized in the American Baptist Church in high school and received his calling at an American Baptist camp. He graduated from Mt. Hood Community College, Oregon State University, BS, BA, Oregon State, MBA, and Western Seminary. He has resigned his position as Sr. Pastor of the First Baptist Church in Omaha, Nebraska.
He was previously the Associate Pastor at a First Baptist Church in Oregon City. Rev. Toupin wrote…” my passion and desire is to serve…in a local American Baptist Church that takes seriously their call to make disciples who love God and love neighbor (Mt 22:37-40). I believe God has called me to serve in an urban setting where preaching, innovation and cross-cultural ministry is required….
My education and experience have prepared me well for pastoral ministry. My studies at seminary have given me a firm biblical and theological foundation which I have been able to apply through preaching, evangelism, discipleship and pastoral care.”  Lord, let us wholeheartedly welcome The Rev. Matt Toupin and his family. Philippians 3:13-14...  “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But, one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Apostle Paul
