Elder's Information

The Elders Board is elected from the membership of RockPointe Church for the purpose of working with the Lead Pastor to establish and implement the mission, vision and directional plan of the church. We believe that God has established the local church as a primary vehicle for establishing and furthering his Kingdom here on earth. As a local church, it is our highest priority to worship God and fulfill the Great Commission.

The governance and operation of RockPointe Church is structured around the principle that the Elders Board most effectively provides ‘oversight to the local church’ when it focuses on clearly defining the mission and vision of the church (the outcomes). Once these outcomes are understood, the Elders Board works with the Lead Pastor to establish measurable results that are quantifiable and achievable (e.g. growth in worship attendance, number of conversions, baptisms, growth in small groups, volunteer involvement levels, special projects and initiatives).

In turn, the ministry operating staff (the pastors, paid staff, ministry team leaders, lay workers) most effectively contribute to local church goals when they have both the responsibility and accountability to establish the means of ministry - program design, methods and procedures. People will be most committed to achieving the desired results if they have meaningful input and say in defining the means to achieve the vision or ‘how to get the job done’.

AboutUs Elders MattB

Matt Boda
Lead Pastor

Our Lead Pastor was born in Philadelphia, but raised in Regina and is proudly Canadian. Matt has been married to Jamie for almost 30 years and together, they have five daughters, four son-in-laws and one granddaughter. He began following Christ at age 18 and has served in pastoral roles in Kelowna, Regina, Philadelphia, Calgary and Salem, Oregon. Matt loves hanging with family and friends, giving talks about the most important stuff in life, seeing leaders increase their influence and watching people grow. Reading, sports and the outdoors are also a big part of his life. Matt says he's working hard to live as a called rather than driven man in his pursuit to love God, live all his life in His grip and love those around him well.
