2016 Year-End Review: Matthew Nunn

The end of the year is a great time to pause, take a breath, and reflect. It’s a chance to celebrate the wins, take note of the setbacks, and make plans to improve in the New Year. And this practice of pausing and reflecting isn’t just helpful in our personal lives; it’s helpful for our ministries as well.

That’s why we reached out to a few of our amazing XP3 Partners to see if they’d be willing to answer a few questions about their year in student ministry. We’re calling it a Year-End Review, and each week through the end of the year we’ll be sharing a video like this from one of our partners. The hope is that, as they share their experiences and insight, you’ll be challenged and encouraged to reflect on your own ministry heading into 2017.

This week we’re hearing from Matthew Nunn. Matthew is the Middle School Pastor at The First Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina.


I need to be who God has called me to be. I don’t need to be the student pastor down the road, we don’t need to be the church down the road. God has called me and our church and our ministry to be who we are. And when we are who we are we can reach who God intends us to reach.  – Matthew Nunn
