Matt Townsend

Senior Pastor
Harvest Philadelphia, PA

Matt grew up in Iowa and was saved at the age 14, after which he quickly sensed the desire to be involved in full-time ministry. Matt found himself continuously witnessing to people and desiring to share God’s Word. Mentors, friends, and his parents affirmed his aspirations for ministry.

Matt attended Faith Baptist Bible College, where the Lord honed and developed his spiritual gifts, and exposed him to the concept of church planting. His desire was sparked to learn more and to plant a church himself.

Through various roles as a counselor, program director, worship leader, youth pastor, and interim pastor, Matt was given many fruitful opportunities to minister the Word and see lives transformed. He is excited to be pastoring Harvest Philadelphia and hopes to raise up more Harvest churches in the greater Philadelphia area that will reach the city with the gospel and transform lives for the glory of God.
