Get to Know Matt Filler

Hi, I'm Matt Filler. I minister in Portugal.


Ministry Description

I'm excited to serve as Projects and Logistics Manager! I truly believe that God has great things in store for our ministry as we steward the property that He is given us and partner with the people that He has sent. I will be working with our team in developing future plans for our property and helping with the organization of our various ministries. It's a blessing to be involved with the Bible Clubs, Camps, and the International Groups that we are able to host. God is doing great things in Portugal and I'm blessed to be involved in it!

About Matt

At a young age I heard the Gospel presented in a church service where I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. I talked to my mom when we got home and she explained the Gospel to me. It was at this time I accepted Christ as my Savior and put my trust in Him. I believed that I was a sinner in need of God's grace, that Jesus had died for my sins, and that He rose again so that I might have eternal life! I have seen God working in my life ever since, as He has continued to show me areas in my life that need to change. I'm thankful for how the Holy Spirit guides me and directs me as I seek to become more like Christ!

While attending the Word of Life Bible Institute in New York, I was blessed with the opportunity to go on missions trips to both El Salvador and Brazil. After my time at the Bible Institute, I continued my education at Cedarville University, where I studied Business Management. During this time I was able to return to Brazil for a summer, solidifying my desire to be a full-time missionary!

God then opened the door for me to serve in Portugal for two and a half years as a Cross Cultural Intern! I'm so thankful that the Lord led me to Portugal and gave me the opportunity to serve alongside our team there. I'm excited about what He is doing through our team in reaching young people with the Gospel and training up the next generation of leaders. We have the privilege of seeking to build authentic relationships, developing leaders, and mobilizing young people from around the world!

For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers. 1 Timothy 4:10
