Who is Matt Chandler?
Matt Chandler is well known as the senior pastor of teaching at the Village Church. He distinguishes Israel and the church as two distinct entities that God formed at various times throughout history.
Additionally, he adheres to a reformed theological interpretation of gender roles. According to this perspective, although God created and called men and women for different responsibilities in the home and the church, they are equal in terms of essence, value, and dignity.
Wives are expected to support and submit to their husbands’ leadership while husbands are expected to lead, protect, and provide for their families. The position of pastor/elder is only open to men because they are to be the ones to carry out the major duties of leading the local church.

Matt Chandler Village Church
Chandler is an elder and the lead pastor of teaching at The Village Church, which is based in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Additionally, they envision themselves as a comfortable home for thousands of people who are growing in the grace of the gospel and seeking Jesus Christ.
The church has experienced a rapid growth rate of over a thousand new members joining the church annually. The move to all-male eldership, according to Chandler, was one of many changes he made as a result of the rapid growth that occurred after his arrival.
More than 50,000 people have been inspired by the gospel through their campuses, church planting activities, revitalization programs, and speakers. They have helped millions of people all around the world as they willingly share the blessings that God has given them.
Chandler apparently took a hiatus from the Village Church in August 2022 following the alleged exchange of several Instagram direct messages with a lady who was not his wife. The church hired Castaeda and Heidelman, a boutique law firm, to look into the matter.
The church refused to release the information, claiming that they wanted to “respect the woman Matt was texting with her request not to be put in the spotlight.” Church elders described the leave of absence as “both disciplinary and progressive,” while Chandler described the conversation as “unsecured and unwise.”
Matt holds American nationality. He is a native of Seattle, Washington, USA.
