  COMMUNITY OUTREACH PASTOR        Matthew Ward   Matt grew up in Tennessee and after high school, he attended Culinard: Culinary Institute of Virginia College in Birmingham where he received his degree in culinary arts.  Matt’s culinary career was very exciting yet the accomplishments did not satisfy the call of God that was upon his life. In 2012, he heard the great testimonies of J38 School of Discipleship and knew that the Lord was leading him to Scottsboro, AL. The next 9 months would radically change Matt’s life.  He was then offered the opportunity to lead the following year’s J38 students. As the year passed, he was given another incredible opportunity to come on staff as Outreach Pastor at The Well FWC. This was a chance to love on a community that had quickly become home. Since then Matt has enjoyed serving with many great volunteers to feed, clothe, and help restore lives.
