Matt Stinton is a worship leader, songwriter, and worship pastor at Bethel Church. Matt grew up in a home filled with music in a small farming town in southern Wisconsin. He began playing the piano at age 5, finished his first song at age 6, and continued writing music in his early teens after teaching himself how to play the guitar. Matt later studied Audio Production & Engineering in Lakeland, Tennessee and attended a liberal arts school in Springfield, Missouri, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcasting & Journalism.
In 2006 he served at a small church in New London, New Hampshire and stepped into worship leading there. After attending the Bethel School of Worship in 2009, Matt moved to Redding, California to attend Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. Matt brings fresh creativity and musical intuition in worship that releases the church into greater unity and honesty before God.
His songs “This Is What You Do” and “Draw Near” are featured on The Loft Sessions and For the Sake of the World albums. Matt currently travels in the US and internationally leading worship and representing Bethel Music.
