Leadership

Our Founding Pastors

Matt + Martha Fry

God called Pastor Matt & Martha to start a church that would connect with where people are living today. They have a passion to create life-giving environments and help people to know God, find freedom, discover their purpose and make a difference. They launched HopeFront Church, originally known as C3 Church, in an elementary school in 1998. The vision has always been to provide real hope for people in a real world.

Matt is the author of the book I AM – Encounter the One Who Gives You Purpose and Peace in a Crazy World. He also serves on the leadership team for the Association of Related Churches (ARC), a church planting organization that believes in planting life-giving churches across the world. With a passion to train leaders internationally, Matt also serves as an associate trainer with Equip. Equip was started by John Maxwell and has trained over 2 million church leaders around the world. Matt graduated with a B.S. from Liberty University in Church Ministries and a M.A. in Ministerial Leadership from Southeastern University.

Martha loves to empower people to live lives that are spiritually, emotionally and physically healthy.  She is a gifted communicator who uses leadership training and practical messages to inspire people to be all that God created them to be. Martha has given leadership in many areas of the church through the years. One of her biggest passions is missions, and she has led trips to South Africa and Guatemala throughout the years. She is the author of Moving Forward.
