Sundays Mornings at 10:30

Our Team

Pastors, Staff, & Leaders

Pastor Matt Slater

Lead Pastor

If you join us on a Sunday morning, more than likely you’ll be listening to him! Matt’s role as lead pastor is to preach, care for the congregation, equip people to serve God, lead the board and ministry leaders, and help give vision to Monroe Nazarene. When he isn't talking about some sci-fi/fantasy film in his message, he's probably watching one. He would love to meet you when you join us!

Sam Poley

Administrative Manager

Whether it be communicating about events or coordinating our ministries, Sam probably took care of it! Sam is an integral part of our church life and she’s dedicated to making it happen! Sam also helps lead our youth ministry as a committed mentor and administrator.

Charles and Sara Ryder

Worship Leaders

When they aren't leading our music during Sunday worship, you'll find the Ryders prayerfully crafting worship sets, finding musicians, or playing zone defense with their family.

Nick Hay

Technology Coordinator & Board Secretary

Ministry is far more digital than it used to be. Thankfully we have Nick to help coordinate, troubleshoot, and run our technologies! If it plugs in, Nick probably made it happen. He is also our board secretary.

Denise Thornsberry

Facilities

Whatever needs cleaned or moved, Denise is the person to get it done! Denise helps keep our facilities neat and tidy for ministries, rentals, and whatever else may be happening.
