Matt Carpenter

I was blessed to be raised by two God-fearing parents who were faithful to reflect the gospel to me in any and every way. As I grew I learned that I was a sinner condemned by God and that I needed to put my faith and trust in Jesus to be saved. At an early age (4 or 5) I put my faith In Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of my sins, but was not baptized until I was 11 years old. 

As I continued to grow in my understanding of what it meant to be a follower of Christ, I felt God beginning to call me to Worship Ministry. God did this through the gifts and talents he has given me, and by the faithful discipling of my Worship Pastor (and now Pastor) Kenny D’Auria. I pursued God’s call on my life by getting a degree in Worship and Pastoral Studies at Boyce College in Louisville, Kentucky. I graduated in May of 2017 and I am incredibly grateful for my time there. 

At RCF our number one priority during musical worship is to make the Gospel as clear as possible each and every Sunday, and to magnify the name of Jesus. We do this through theologically rich and gospel-centered songs that vary in style from hymn style, contemporary, or even a hint of country. It is my conviction that whatever we do on Sunday morning is informed by the authoritative Word of God and brings glory to Him (2 Tim 3:16; Col 3:16; 1 Cor 10:31).
