Matt Behrens

Matt Behrens is the NextGen Pastor at LakePointe Church in Hot Springs, Arkansas.  His primary responsibilities revolve around outreach and discipleship among teenagers in the community.  Matt loves Jesus, his family and most outdoor activities.  His continuing prayer to God is "Your kingdom come--in my life and through my life."  Matt's still learning what the answer to that prayer looks like, and this blog is one way to share what God is showing him.

If there are youth outreach topics you'd like Matt to address, please ask. You can follow Matt on Twitter and Facebook and his blog, justmattbehrens
