Experience Speaks: Gregg Matte

Gregg Matte: “It is never going as good as people say or as bad as people say.”

In our Experience Speaks series, Outreach 100 pastors share what they’ve learned about themselves, the church and the definition of success.

Gregg Matte
Houston’s First Baptist Church in Houston, Texas

ON THE CHURCH

The church is filled with tremendous people who love God and love my family. The best thing I can do for the church is to continue to point them toward Christ with the dreams that are bigger than our abilities.

ON MYSELF

I want things to go faster and with less friction than reality enables.

ON SUCCESS

Success means being faithful to God’s call on my life and leading his people in his direction.

BEST ADVICE I EVER RECEIVED

It is never going as good as people say or as bad as people say.
