Gregg Matte

Senior Pastor

Gregg Matte is the senior pastor of Houston’s First Baptist Church. Under his leadership, this historic church founded in 1841 has moved to the cutting edge of ministry and experienced tremendous growth, including the addition of four campuses in the greater Houston area.

Before coming to Houston in 2004, Gregg founded Breakaway Ministries at Texas A&M University — the largest college Bible study in the nation. What started with 12 participants in his apartment grew to a weekly gathering of more than 4,000 students each Tuesday night under his leadership. He continues to serve on Breakaway’s Board of Directors.

Gregg is the author of Finding God’s Will (2010), I AM Changes Who i Am (2012), and Unstoppable Gospel (2015). He has also written Bible study guides The Highest Education: Becoming a Godly Man and Birds and Bees: A Conversation about God, Sex, and Sexuality.

Gregg holds a Bachelor’s degree in marketing from Texas A&M and a Master’s degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. In 2011, Gregg received the Outstanding Alumni Award from the Mays Business School at Texas A&M. He was the first pastor to receive the honor in the history of the award.

Gregg married Kelly in 1997 and together they have a son and a daughter, Greyson (2001) and Valerie (2008).
