I was raised in Manchester, a city in northwest England, by wonderful parents who modeled, mentored and demonstrated a strong faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

After completing high school in the U.K, I attended an internship at the largest Church in northwest England where I discovered a passion for the work of the ministry. 

I have completed several certificates in Christian Ministry, including a BA in Worship Leadership and I'm currently working on my Masters in Christian Leadership.  

In 1997, my family followed a call of God to move to East Texas where I met God’s greatest gift to me, my wife, B. We now have three wonderful children, Max, Lexi & McCade. B. & I are committed to helping build and model a healthy marriage and faith in the home.

After leading several churches as a Worship Pastor, God began to move on our hearts to leave the path I was on, to take over a small church in East Texas as the Lead Pastor. There was a clear commission from God...

TO BUILD A CHURCH IN THE HEART OF EAST TEXAS THAT WAS A SAFE PLACE FOR THOSE THAT WERE FAR FROM CHRIST TO COME AND EXPERIENCE THE LOVE AND PRESENCE OF JESUS.

In 2009 with 75 people, Grace Creek Church was re-branded, re-birthed & re-launched with new leadership, new vision & purpose….and that was to 

REACH PEOPLE AND BUILD LIVES.

Today, Grace Creek is ministering to over 2000 in weekend attendance and God has built a spiritual family that is truly a blessing to the local community and beyond.

It’s also a joy to have my wife B., serving alongside me and leading a life-giving ministry to the women of East Texas. Grace Creek Women hosts two large events annually, monthly gatherings in the spring and fall, and several outreaches throughout the year to serve our community.

I want to personally invite you and your family to join us this weekend for one of our worship services. I believe Grace Creek is a place you can call home! 

YOU BELONG HERE!

Matt Benson
Lead Pastor
