Pastor Matt Mendenhall grew up in Wyandotte and attended New Faith Chapel, a Missionary Church in Romulus. During his senior year of high school he felt called by the Lord to enter the ministry full time.
He attended and graduated from Bethel College in 2007 with a B.A. in Youth Ministry/Adolescent Studies. He was hired here at FMC and started working right out of college.
That summer he married Stephanie, his high school sweetheart and fellow Bethel College grad (A.A. in Early Childhood Ed.). Stephanie teaches at Oakland Christian School in Clarkston. Their son, Brody, was born in 2009, and their daughter, Ally, was born in 2011.
