Matt Papa


Matt Papa is a minister and Christian recording artist based out of Raleigh, North Carolina where he lives with his wife, Lauren, and two daughters, Paisley and Stella.  He serves on staff as a worship leader at The Summit Church in Durham and is currently finishing a masters degree at Southeastern Seminary.  For over a decade, Matt has been writing and recording songs that are saturated with God’s Word.  To Papa, a song is more than just lyrics and melody – it’s a sermon people will remember.

His latest studio release, “This Changes Everything”, is a cry to put off empty religion and embrace the radical call of the risen Christ.  With guitar in hand, this preacher/singer seeks to point listeners to the glory of God in Christ and His supreme Lordship in all things.  At the heart of Papa’s ministry is a vision to see the nations worship Jesus; and to that end, Matt radically leverages his life, his ministry, and his music.
