Matt Braun

Anchor Kids Pastor

Matt accepted the Lord his senior year of high school and ever since, has had a fire in his heart for the Spirit to move and immediately felt called to the next generation. He then started serving at Gateway Church while attending Christ for the Nations in Dallas. After he graduated from Christ from the Nations, where he received a bachelor’s in Practical Theology, he served in Oklahoma City as an associate kids pastor and then as a student pastor in Nashville, TN. He then received his second bachelor’s degree in Christian Ministry at The King’s University in 2016.

 Upon college graduation, he felt called to serve the people of Thailand, ministering to orphans and teaching them English, all while experiencing the spiciest food and gaining a love for the Thai culture.

 Matt is recently married to his beautiful bride, Lauren. Matt loves football, particularly the Dallas Cowboys. He finds joy in a strong cup of (black) coffee and fellowship with friends.  If Matt had to only eat at one restaurant for the rest of his life, he would choose Chipotle.
