Matt Wilson

Student Ministry Coordinator


Meet Matt Wilson, who is a native of Los Angeles, CA. He resides with his parents, Dan and Carol and his younger brother, Greg. While in high school, Matt attended UCC and then helped out with the youth ministry while in college at Hope International University.  He earned a degree in Youth and Family Ministry from HIU, and at the end of college, Matt interned and worked at Downey First Christian Church (DFCC) as their Youth Ministry Associate for 4 years. There he worked alongside the youth pastor and helped develop the Middle School Ministry. Matt has always had a heart for Missions and while at DFCC he participated in two short term Mission Trips to Ecuador and countless trips to a Children’s Home in Rosarito, Mexico. 

Matt loves basketball, whether he’s watching it or playing it, and he is a huge USC football fan. If you want to treat him, he loves eating fettuccine alfredo and drinking iced tea.
A favorite quote of Matt is: “If you’re not learning, you’re not leading.”
