B21 Panel @ SBC2010 Bio: Matt Chandler
B21 is excited to have Matt Chandler joining this year’s B21 SBC Lunch Panel (REGISTER HERE). After several years serving on a local church staff and as an itinerant preacher, Matt Chandler became the lead Pastor of First Baptist Church of Highland Village, TX now known as The Village Church in 2002. Since that time, Matt has led the congregation through uncompromised Gospel-centered preaching, and visionary leadership. The church has grown from 160 to over 6,000 people, and they now have three campuses. Matt is committed to planting churches, and is involved in planting around Dallas and across the world through The Village Church and other partnerships. He has become a leader in the evangelical world through his ministry at The Village Church, his leadership in the Acts 29 Church Planting Network, and through his preaching at multiple conferences.
Matt will bring a much-needed voice to the b21 panel at this year’s SBC. His church does cooperate with the Southern Baptist Convention and he has expressed hopefulness about the future and the GCR, even saying that he would follow Danny Akin, “into the furnace” (check out his 20/20 talk at SEBTS). We are looking forward to the insights he will bring to the table about why he is a Southern Baptist and what he thinks the future of Southern Baptists ought to look like.
