WELCOME TO FRC

Hi, I am Pastor Matt Waite.  I am married to Jennifer and we have five wonderful children.  Olivia, Grace, Isabel, Maggie, and Wyatt.  One little boy with four older sisters!  They are a blessing to us each and every day (even though it sometimes doesn’t feel like it in each and every MOMENT).  They make us laugh, hope, question, cry, and love.  Sometimes they even pick up their rooms.

I was born and raised in Michigan.  I spent 13 years flying around the world working for a medical device company after college.  It was a great education and a lot of fun, but, eventually, I gave that up because I felt called (by God) to go to Seminary and study the Bible.  This is how I came to be pastor at FRC Oak Harbor.  After I graduated from Seminary the people here were crazy enough to ask me to come out here and be Pastor!  And I was crazy enough to come!

Jen and I are madly in love with each other (most of the time) because it is fun to be in love and to have someone who knows your deepest secrets and flaws but still wants to hold your hand anyway.  We laugh a lot, sometimes because life is really, really funny and sometimes because otherwise we would cry our eyes out.  Mostly we are deeply grateful to be called God’s kids even though we are very flawed people.  God’s love is amazing and we are honored to be able to tell other broken, flawed people about the GRACE that God has given to us in Jesus Christ.
