Matt Creamer & Roberta
Before Matt was brought here to NPPC, he spent many years as a worship leader and a singer/songwriter in the PCA and freelanced after graduating from Cedarville with a BA in Music Performance. Matt grew up in Israel and speaks fluent Arabic. He has recorded several Arabic albums, which have all aided in spreading the Gospel message literally, across the world. (Link to Concert) In 2009, Matt and Roberta felt the calling of the Lord on their lives into Gospel Ministry and attended Covenant Seminary in St. Louis where Matt earned his MDiv, and Roberta her master’s in counseling. She received her certificate in Trauma and Abuse Therapy from the Allender Center.
"Matt has a unique teaching gift and is able to convey the power of God's Grace, through the sound doctrinal teaching of God's word in a meaningful, humble and very relatable way. It's unlike any preaching I've ever heard heard before, growing up in the Church. The Doctrine of Grace is taught in a way that has aided in my personal spiritual growth, in ways I didn't know possible. Grace is taught in a way that has freed me from believing I needed to be good enough for God, and pointed me towards a new understanding of His love for me. It's a love that does not depend on who I am, who I was, or who I will be- a love that comes ONLY from the GRACE I was given when God called me to be His, and saved me through the blood of Jesus Christ. I'm grateful God has used Matt and NPPC in my life in such big ways, and I know He will continue to use Matt and this body of believers to share this great news with others"
-Lis Rhodes (attending since September 2021)
