  • Matt noble - bsm assistant

    Matt was raised in a Christian home in Plano, Texas. According to Matthew, even though he spent the majority of his childhood and teenage years in and out of church every week, he never truly heard the Gospel. While in high school, his selfishness and pride began to pull him away from the church, and he tried to find the fullness of life by pleasing other people and making himself known. After being brought to a place of loneliness and depression, Christ met him in the valley and changed his heart of stone into a heart of flesh at age 19. He soon began to lead worship and disciple students in the youth group at Parkway Hills Baptist Church. Matt graduated from the University of North Texas in May of 2015. While a student at UNT, he served as one of our BSM worship leaders. Matt is also a member of North Point Church Denton.
