Rev. Matthew Gallant
Youth Pastor & Worship Leader

My name is Matt Gallant. I have been serving as Youth Pastor and Worship leader at South Newington Baptist Church since September 2015. I have been in ministry of some sort since I was 18 years old. I have done children’s ministry, youth ministry, camp ministry, nursing home ministry, music ministry and college ministry at various times. I have a Master’s degree from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.  I graduated in 2009. My wife and I have been married and lived in the Savannah area for about ten years. We have two beautiful little girls, Sophia and Faith. We thank God regularly for calling us to serve at South Newington and for the chance to raise our girls in such a loving and generous community of faith.
