Matt Chandler

Lead Pastor of Teaching at The Village Church in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex


Matt Chandler came to The Village in December 2002 and describes his tenure as a replanting effort where he was involved in changing the theological and philosophical culture of the congregation. The church has witnessed a tremendous response growing from 160 people to over 11,000 with campuses in Flower Mound, Dallas, Denton and Fort Worth.

Matt is currently involved in church planting efforts both locally and internationally through The Village and various strategic partnerships. He serves as president of Acts 29, a worldwide church-planting organization. Over the last 10 years, Acts 29 has emerged from a small band of brothers to nearly 500 churches in the United States and around the world.

Beyond speaking at conferences throughout the world, Matt has also written four books, The Explicit Gospel, published in April 2012, Creature of the Word, released in October 2012, To Live is Christ To Die is Gain, released in September 2013, and Recovering Redemption, released in May 2014. His greatest joy outside of Jesus is being married to Lauren and being a dad to their three children, Audrey, Reid and Norah.

The purpose of the Kainos 2015 is to gather leaders who either seek to start multi-ethnic ministries or churches, or who aspire to transition their current homogenous ministries into a multi-ethnic trajectory.
