our pastors

Matt Simmons


I’ve had the privilege of serving as the pastor of Henderson Baptist Church since April 2013. My wife Rebecca and I have two sons, Nixon and Patrick. I’m a graduate of the University of Mobile (2008) and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (2011), and Rebecca is a graduate of the Harrison School of Pharmacy at Auburn University (2013).

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching basketball, and the occasional wood-working project. Also, I hate tomatoes.

We love the people at Henderson, and we’re confident that you will, too!  We would love for you to join us one Sunday and to meet you in person.

I began serving at Henderson Baptist Church in May 2015 as a pastoral intern, and in September 2016 the church ordained me as an associate pastor. I graduated from Troy University in May 2018, and I am currently doing graduate work at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, while still serving at Henderson.

Next to me in the picture is my lovely wife Ashley. We got married in the Fall of 2018. We actually met right here at Henderson. This place has become like a home for us, and the people like family.

When I’m not working, I like to fish, hunt, and watch movies.
