Elder Matthew Gibson is a real gift to our church. He and his family are actively involved in most areas of church life. For example, Matt and his wife Stacie serve as youth leaders and lead an Intensive Discipleship class on Monday evenings. In addition, Matt regularly teaches Adult Sunday School, and leads a small group at his home in Conesus, NY.
Matt and Stacie also head up Grace Baptist's Biblical Counseling ministry. The Gibsons are ACBC (formerly NANC) and IABC certified counselors, and are currently helping a number of others through the certification process. Both are gifted (and busy!) counselors - skillfully getting to the root of problems so that they can graciously apply the gospel and offer hope to the hurting.
As an elder, Matt's primary responsibility is in the area of church membership. He is passionate about seeing God's people connected and committed to the local church, where they can exercise their God-given gifts for His glory.
Though it might seem as if Matt is a vocational pastor at Grace Baptist Church, the astounding thing is that he does all of these things after working full time as a pipefitter in the Rochester area. Perhaps most importantly, Matt is a faithful father to his 4 children: Nathan, Emma, Madalyn, and Noah.
