Matthew Whitman - Pastor


Matt never meant to be a pastor, but he's glad it turned out the way it did. He was teaching college history and doing some ministry part-time when he agreed to fill the pulpit at Lander E Free for 3 months (fall 2010). In those three months he fell in love with the community and the church and eventually accepted the call to be the next pastor. Matt loves communicating the Bible in ways that are understandable and in-depth, he brings humor and history to bear on the text each week as he teaches straight through entire books of the Bible.

In addition to preaching on a weekly basis, Matt hosts a Youtube program called The Ten Minute Bible Hour where he works through books of the Bible succinctly with a dash of humor.

Matt and his wife, Camilla, have 3 kids - Helaina, Monica and Marius. The Whitmans have fun playing sports, exploring the mountains, traveling and enjoying nerd culture.
