Matthew Bender

Ministry Associate

Matt was born and raised in a Christian home in the lower mainland. He didn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus until February 2018, when Matt met him on a service trip with Habitat for humanity, and Matt’s life has not been the same since. In spring 2020, he graduated from Trinity Western University and is currently working towards his Masters of Divinity at Regent Seminary. 

Matt is excited about married life with his fiance Whitney as a part of Village Church. He loves food, grossly overpriced coffee, hikes, and reading books that 99% of people have never heard of. Matt loves people and is passionate about seeing people come to know Jesus in a deeper and more personal way.
