Matthew Eades - Senior Pastor

 Hi, I’m Matthew Eades, Pastor at Green Memorial Baptist Church. I am primarily responsible for the overall leadership of the church and for the teaching on Sunday Morning and Wednesday Night.


My wife Katie and I moved here in October, 2007. We were married in 2003, four years after serving together as summer missionaries in Australia. We are proud parents to our sons, Cooper and Connor. I grew up in Catawba County, about 45 minutes north of Charlotte.

BIRTHDAY: May 10, 1978.

EDUCATION: B.S. in Applied Communications with a Minor in Religion from Appalachian State University. Masters of Divinity with Christian Education focus from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Interests and Favorites

  • Places: Oak Island, N.C., Hebron Rock Colony outside Boone, N.C. One day I want to see the Brown Mountain Lights. I want to go back to Australia some day.
  • What's on your iPod: If I had one, I’d keep some Blue Grass, Contemporary Worship and something funny.
  • Books: Anything on or by the Marx Brothers. I also like reading leadership books and “Mother Earth News” magazine..
  • Sport Teams: I'll go with UNC, but honestly I do good to know what sport plays in what season!
  • Movies: Comedies and Sci-fi.
  • Hobbies: RAQUETBALL!
  • Dislikes: People who drive down the pull-off lane in heavy traffic. When people use the word, “literally” in a phrase that obviously isn’t literal. Like, “I literally flew through the ceiling.” 
  • Odd Facts: I had five extra teeth lodged in the roof of my mouth. They have been removed.
  • Life Scripture: “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” – Micah 6:8
