What Turned You Against the Church?

A few months ago, TJ asked me to be a contributing writer to the DLMK site. I’m thankful for the opportunity and the feedback I receive from some of you. I would like to get to know some of you better as I do not have the blogging history with you that TJ does. 

Would you please do me a favor? If you left the church and returned or left completely, would you please comment here or email me at matthewwinters1980@gmail.com? I want to hear from you. I promise to not cast judgment. I am just gathering information. Thanks in advance!

Author: Matthew Winters (The Comeback Pastor)

Born and raised in Portsmouth, VA, I eventually landed in upstate SC because when God calls I move. I gave my life to Christ in 1987 and surrendered to the call to ministry in 1997. I am a three-time graduate from Liberty University and Theological Seminary: BS in Religion (2003), the MA in Religion (Leadership concentration - 2006), and the Master of Divinity (Pastoral Ministries - 2013). I have served as a worship leader and senior pastor in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia since 1996. After experiencing a divorce, God graciously gave me my wife, Jennifer, whom I married in September 2015. Between the two of us, we have 6 children. I am the Lead/Founding Pastor of Overcomers Church in Walhalla, SC, a church plant that is helping those who have been overcome by life to become Overcomers in Christ. Jennifer and I both love people and long to see them enter into a relationship with Christ and walk in the power of His Spirit. I pray that these thoughts I share will challenge and inspire you to greater heights and deeper depths for the glory of Christ.
