Matthew Swiatkowski, Jr. was born in Belleville, New Jersey in August, 1990. He had the blessing of being raised in a Christian home by his parents, Pastor Matthew & Renee Swiatkowski, and a godly church, Gospel Light Baptist Church in Kearny, NJ. At the age of six, Matthew accepted Jesus Christ as Saviour.
As a teenager, Bro. Matt surrendered to the Lord’s will for his life. He started to develop a love for music which led him to attend various music camps and to take other music lessons. It was during this time that he realized God wanted him to serve in the music ministry and strive to learn more about what truly defines godly music and acceptable worship.
Bro. Matt attended International Bible College in the fall of 2008 and transferred the next year to New England Baptist College; it was there that he met his future wife, Ms. Hannah Nichols. After graduating in 2012, Bro. Matt moved back to his hometown and started leading the music in his home church while serving under his father. Bro. Matt and Ms. Hannah were married in June, 2013 and worked together for the next 5 years at Gospel Light Baptist Church.
During this time, Pastor Giordano was looking for a full-time music minister and, through a mutual acquaintance, came into contact with Bro. Matt. After much prayer and discussion, Bro. Matt accepted the position at Trinity Baptist Church, and in January 2019, he and his wife moved to Grand Prairie, Texas. Bro Matt and Ms. Hannah are excited about God’s leading and are looking forward to what the Lord has in store for them and the ministry of Trinity Baptist Church.
