Matt Richards

Children’s Pastor

Matt Richards, his wife Stephanie and their four boys Rance, Cavin, Carden, & Kennet are from North Carolina. Matt first became a Christian when he was eight years old and felt called by God to work in ministry as an adult. He’s been in ministry for 12 years and the greatest lesson that he’s learned through those years is the importance of teaching parents as much as he teaches kids. His favorite aspect of being a Children’s Pastor is when kids understand that they are part of God’s big story. Matt would describe himself as a quiet person who loves telling kids about Jesus. His favorite colors are red and blue and his favorite food is pizza. For fun, Matt enjoys anything that has to do with sports, but primarily soccer and basketball. His favorite TV show right now is Last Man Standing. Matt is excited to join our team and would like families here at Crossroads to know that he looks forward to doing ministry alongside each of you and reaching Shawnee for the Kingdom of Christ.
