Get to Know Matt Filler

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


Ministry Description

I will be serving on the Word of Life Portugal Staff for at least two years as a Cross Cultural Intern. As a staff we will be involved with the local church as we use camps, community and local school outreach, sports tournaments, and other ministries to reach the next generation with the Gospel! I will continue to provide updates about how we seek to accomplish our goals of evangelizing and discipling the next generation in Portugal!

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 has now opened the door for me to serve in Portugal for at least the next two years! God continues to place the desire in my heart to reach young people with the Gospel, to train them as the next generation of Christian leaders, and to mobilize them to serve God in whatever way He leads them! I'm so excited to follow God step by step and to see what the next few years have in store!

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
