Featured Staff: Matt Nault

This week, we’re talking with Mission campus pastor Matt Nault. Matt has been on staff at City Church for the last seven years and lives in the Bernal/Mission area with his wife, Florence, and three sons, Benjamin, Levi, and Joshua.

Considering Christianity

Laura Turner in Conversation with Matt Nault It can be hard to know where to start when you’re first asking questions about faith.

And even God exists in continuous relationship--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. “People enter community in order to grow in inner freedom, then to give it to others; to radiate it, to offer good news to others,” Jean Vanier once said. So we want to invite you, if you haven’t already, to consider joining a Community Group. Community Groups are the daily embodiment of the life and vision of City Church. They are ...
