In Matthew 28 Jesus gives what has come to be known as the great commission. "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..." This gives us a clear statement of what we are to be about as His church, making disciples. Jesus then tells us how to make disciples. "...baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." We are to seek loving and holy fellowship just as God is ever in perfect fellowship. This means that we must be about community, doing life together, going after the heart of God and of one another. Next we are to teach, in both word and deed, all that Jesus commanded, bringing every aspect of life under His Lordship. With so much of life clamoring for our attention and devotion, doing life together is essential and it is the model Jesus set and commanded for discipleship. Our heart for adult ministry is to follow the example of Christ and so produce ever deepening disciples of Jesus Christ who are a visible expression of His reign.

In John 4, Jesus has a fantastic conversation with a Samaritan woman at a well. In this conversation He exposes the broken heart of the woman who continued to chase after relationships that only ended in further brokenness. Jesus then reveals Himself to be the great lover of her soul, the one true and everlasting relationship that she was created for and that could heal her broken heart, fill her to overflowing and set her on mission. In a world that vies for the affections of our teenagers, it is our desire to lead our teenagers to this same love and grace of God as seen in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Our vision is to see our teenagers so captured by the love of Christ as seen in His cross, that they will be consumed by the mission of Christ and unleashed into the world carrying, proclaiming and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Matthew Brown
Matt's passion is to see people captured by the love of Christ as set forth in the Gospel and for them to embrace the freedom and live in the joy of the Lordship of Christ to the glory of God.
Matt was born in Wixom, Michigan but grew up primarily in Northwest Tampa where he played baseball and soccer and had a passion for sports of all kinds. Matt has a daughter, Addison, who was born in December of 2011 and a son Nehemiah, born February of 2015. Matt continues to enjoy playing sports and games of all kinds; he loves movies and enjoys the outdoors.
Matt attended college for a year and a half at the University of Tampa where he played baseball before transferring to the University of South Florida where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in education in 2004. He taught Physical Education at Perkins Elementary School for two years before being called into youth ministry full time. Matt has received his Masters of Divinity (MDiv) at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando.
In 2006, God called him into full time youth ministry at Church by the Sea in Madeira Beach, FL. It was Matt great joy and privilege to love and serve the youth and this church for seven and half wonderful years. In February of 2013, God called Matt to Tradewinds Church where he served as pastoral associate and was ordained as a Ruling Elder. While here, God continued to affirm Matt's calling to plant a Church and on August 3, 2014 Adoration Church met corporately for the very first time.
