Cell: 619-962-5124

My name is Matt. I am senior pastor at EPiC church. In the picture to the left you have a chance to see me in my natural environment. My wife of 17 years Melissa and my three children Makayla, Dawson, and Leanna make up team Raines. EPiC will be a great church and I am very grateful to work for God in Torrance.

My ain in ministry is to draw people closer to the God of grace by introducing then to story or restoration. A text that I often visit for inspiration is Colossians 1:5b–6

“Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth .”

Paul states the gospel bears fruit and increase when people understand the grace of God in truth. The sufficiency of grace is revealed in scripture, it’s something I have known through personal experience, and it’s at the heart of what I preach.

I would love to chat with you. You can contact me at
