Matt Ward (pictured here on a mission trip to Nepal) has been the pastor of West Cleveland Baptist Church since 2012. Ever since receiving Christ as his Savior at the age of 16, he has felt a strong call toward vocational ministry. That has led him through various ministries like camp counselor, youth pastor, military chaplain, and senior pastor.

Now, 34 years old, he is longing to lead the church toward a greater emphasis on missions and discipleship. He is a graduate of Tennessee Wesleyan College, Grand Canyon University and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
