Matthew Pinckard

Born and raised by Christian parents in the New Orleans area, I spent most of my life living in the Southeast and Midwest part of the United States.  I’ve also spent time in places like Montana, China, and Lebanon.  While my goal is to be a life-long learner, I formally studied Philosophy for my Bachelor’s degree at Union University and hold a Master of Divinity in Christian Thought from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.  In total I have spent 7 years working at 3 different Chick-fil-A restaurants and have also taught as an Adjunct Faculty for Missouri Baptist University.  I have served in pastor ministry roles since 2018, and have been joyfully honored to be the primary ‘servant-leader’ and pastor of FBC Dupo since October 2022. 


I have been tremendously blessed to be married to Amanda, a Saint Louis area native, since 2012.  Together we have and are currently raising 3 children.  We are excited to call the St. Clair County and surrounding South County area home and hope to see it thrive for years to come!


For fun, I enjoy reading (mostly theology and fiction), playing modern board games, watching a good movie or show, and going on jogs while listening to podcasts. 


My Mission Statement is “I exist to spread a zeal for the glory of God and His all-satisfying and infinite value, that manifests itself by increasing love for God and people, for the joy of all peoples, through Jesus Christ, as revealed in the Bible.”


I would love to have you swing by the church building or meet up for a cup of coffee! You can reach me either (1) by email: or (2) call the church building (618) 286-5810.
