Matt Herndon is the founding pastor of Rooftop Church. As the Lead Pastor, he preaches on Sunday morning, supervises the staff, works with the deacons, shepherds the flock, co-leads the Rooftop elder team, and occasionally sweeps the floors. Matt’s been Rooftop’s Lead Pastor since 2000, when he started the church with the help of a bunch of great folks from Truman State University. He’s originally from St. Louis (Parkway North, ’92), went to Truman State (B.S. Speech Communication), Bethel University (M.Div.), and Covenant Seminary (D.Min.). His wife, Michele, is a nurse manager at Children’s Hospital, and they have three amazing kids--two on earth and one with Jesus. Matt's got too many passions and interests to list and not enough time to pursue them. But in his spare time he and his wife lead The Mitchell and Friends Foundation, dedicating to supporting children and families with Mitchell Syndrome.
