Matthan strives to present variety in song selection, genre, personnel, and leadership. Before 2019, Valley Baptist Church had several different stylistic services, ranging from extremely traditional to extremely progressive. The catalyst for a change came from a desire to see the next generation serve Jesus with a burning passion. “If the music ministry is thriving, the younger generation will follow.” Matthan led his multisite worship ministry from being vastly disconnected in style to being greatly unified in variety. With one unifying direction in mind, Matthan is producing identical content across campuses. He is careful to balance the heritage of their people while drawing in the next generation.
Along with this variety of song selection and genre, Matthan also believes it is important to bring variety in personnel and leadership across campuses. “I try not to be the face of everything going on, it’s not about me.” Matthan leads with regularity, and because of the closeness of their campuses he has the opportunity to lead at both on any given Sunday. Often he will lead for two of the three services at their main campus in addition to leading one service at their second satellite campus. This system encourages his team to refine their worship skills by giving them the opportunity to step into a leadership role in his absence.
