About Matt Stinton
Hello there. My name is Matt and I'm a worship leader, songwriter and worship pastor at Portland Life Center in Portland, Maine. I've written a few songs that have been featured on some of Bethel Music's albums, like The Loft Sessions, For The Sake Of The World, Tides and We Will Not Be Shaken.
About me...I was raised in a farming town in southern Wisconsin. I started writing songs when I was a kid (they weren't very good) and continued doing so through high school and college, playing in various bands along the way (some of them also weren't very good). After finishing college in 2006, I took a job leading worship at a small church in New Hampshire where I lived until moving to Redding in 2009.
I'm married to a beautiful girl from Boston named Carla. We got married in Boston in June 2014 and have been insanely happy ever since. (If you're not married, I highly recommend it.) She also sings and leads worship and travels with me whenever she can.
Let the Lord build you. He knows what He's doing and can accomplish more in an instant than a lifetime of our own striving.
Trust and happiness are linked. The happiest people I know are the ones who trust the Father the deepest and most sincerely.
