Matt Wilson began his pastorate at Union Baptist Church in May 2019. He grew up in northeast Arkansas.
He attended Arkansas Tech University where he met Bethany, who is from Rogers. They have five children: Zoeyanna, Sylvia, Adalynn, Joseph, and Timothy.
After graduating from Arkansas Tech, he served on staff at First Baptist Church in Russellville. He went on to earn a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. After seminary, he was on staff with the Oklahoma State Baptist Collegiate Ministry. Before coming to UBC, he served as a senior pastor in northeast Arkansas.
Matt has a heart for helping others grow in spiritual maturity (Colossians 1:28; Ephesians 4:11-16) through personal discipling relationships. His hope is that UBC would bring glory to God by being biblically faithful and by helping fulfill Jesus' Great Commission.
Matt and Bethany are both certified biblical counselors and are happy to provide counseling from God's Word at no charge.
