Meet the Team


Hello, I am Pastor Matt, Senior Pastor at Pinecrest Baptist Church.  I would personally like to invite you to come and join us for worship on Sunday Mornings or to Bible Study on Wednesday evening.  I am so thankful for my family, my wife Sara and our two wonderful sons.  I am also thankful for my Pinecrest family here in Portsmouth.  At Pinecrest Baptist Church, our vision is to connect to Christ, connect to the Church and connect to the Community. My prayer is that Pinecrest Baptist is a beacon on light to this community, sharing the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Come see how you can be a part of that vision.

Hello, my name is Stephen Day and I am excited to have the opportunity to be the next generation pastor here at Pinecrest Baptist Church.  I was born and raised in Chesapeake, Virginia.  I was called into the ministry when I was a youth, and have been involved ever since.  I have led worship for the past 6 years, been involved in numerous foreign trips around the world, and have led in youth ministry for the past three years.  I graduated from Liberty University in May of 2017 with a BS in Christian Ministries, and a minor in Christian Counseling.  I am currently working on a Master of Divinity from Liberty University.  My only hope and prayer for the youth at Pinecrest Baptist Church is for them to be radically transformed by the gospel, and to fall into a deeper relationship with Jesus every day.
