Rev. Dr. Matthew Wooster
Matt began serving as the Senior Minister of the Hills Church in June 2014.
For the previous eleven years, Matt served as the Associate Minister of the First Congregational Church of Tallmadge, Ohio.
Matt’s vision of his ministry at the Hills Church includes a commitment to helping the congregation discover a shared passion for authentic worship, which centers the congregation and inspires the entire Hills Church family to be a community that is engaged in mission outreach and committed to lifelong spiritual growth. In Matt’s own words, “The church is strongest when we honor the best of our tradition while also bringing forth the new gifts that God’s Spirit continues to provide. I am a person who deeply values heritage, but not because I believe it contains all the answers. Rather, I believe that our history teaches us how to courageously write the next chapter.”
