Pastors & Staff

Matthew Cooke


Pastor Matt was called and confirmed as senior pastor of LBC in June of 2020. He received a Master of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in May 2019, with a concentration in Christian Ministry. He has a strong conviction regarding God’s design of the family unit and seeks to empower and train fathers and mothers to raise their children in “the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” He is humbled and thankful to attempt to teach the great doctrines of the Bible in a God-honoring and understandable way. Pastor Matt loves his Savior, his family, our church family, and the Atlanta Braves. Pastor Matt is pictured with his two oldest nieces, Mary Lane and Lydia.
