pastors-speaking

We believe that vision and change are first birthed in the heart of a pastor and then are poured systematically into your core leadership team, church congregation, and ultimately the community all around you. We also believe that pastors provide the most logical and powerful collaborative partners for other pastors. Who better to invite into the “foxhole” of ministry than one who intimately understands the challenges and successes that lie ahead of you?

 

There is no such thing as a “one size fits all” ministry model. This is why we are excited to partner with you in the unique setting of your calling, your church and your community, as we walk together towards a clear and vibrant missional identity.

 

Our commitment through the Re:Calibr8 Coaching Program is to walk this path with you to identify, define, and forge a sustainable path towards God’s dreams for your city. Throughout this process you will not only be coached weekly by another experienced pastor, you will also receive an onsite assessment, congregational survey, community and church demographic studies, personalized Life Plan and StratOp, organizational journal, targeted sermon series, and customized print and visual media.

 

In addition, you and your spouse will be guided through a 3 day local community service project as our guest in Ogden, Utah. You’ll be hosted by the Genesis Project, a ministry that has grown from a small group meeting in an local coffee shop to a multi-site movement in 6 communities across the nation reaching thousands every week. Here you’ll learn about a sustainable business model and relational church model that marries an embedded ministry with practical community engagement. You will tour the church’s full-service event center, community coffee shop, rehabilitation homes, and non-profit community service centers.

Matt-RobertsPastor Matt Roberts

Matt is the Founder and Lead Pastor of The Genesis Project, a local church and national church planting movement based in Ogden, Utah that has experienced tremendous local and multi-site growth since it’s launch nearly 8 years ago. Matt began his ministry as a Youth Pastor in the inner cities of Tampa Florida, Portland Oregon and Denver Colorado. During this time he traveled extensively as a national speaker and advocate for students in some of the most challenging places in our nation. 

 

After nearly a decade of Youth Ministry, Matt and his family moved to Utah to pursue a lifelong dream of planting a “church for people who don’t do church”. That dream has materialized as The Genesis Project, a church moved to reach the darkest areas of the city with the hope of Jesus. The GP has grown from a small group meeting in an local coffee shop to a multi-site movement in 6 communities across the nation reaching thousands every week. Every GP church is connected by a passion to love the most broken and disenfranchised within the local community. This is accomplished through an active, relational model that marries an embedded church with practical community engagement and a sustainable business model. 

 

The headquarters for this model of ministry is in Ogden, Utah where The Genesis Project finds it’s home on the Hub 801 campus. When not in use for church services and events, Hub 801 operates as a full-service event center, a community coffee shop, a daycare center that serves as a children’s ministry and outreach facility, a local youth center, multiple ministry and rehabilitation homes and non-profit community services. Through the merger of diversified business and ministry, the Hub 801 campus has become a model for planting financially sustainable churches within communities plagued by poverty and religious apathy. 

 

Over the last decade Matt has served in various roles and positions helping churches and denominations revitalize and re-imagine their church planting strategies through an embedded, sustainable, community lens. His passion is found within the hope and excitement he has for the potential of the local church in the 21st century.
