Matthew & Abby Pollock

Senior Pastors

Pastor Matthew Pollock is the Senior Pastor of The Way Family Church in Murrieta, California. He and his wife Abby have two sons, Talon and Kaleb, and two daughters, Hope and Brooke.

At the age of 19, Pastor Matthew had a radical encounter with Jesus that forever changed his life.  He enrolled in Abundant Life School of Ministry (ALSOM) in La Marque, Texas and received his diploma in 2002. In the midst of receiving his education, he met and married his beautiful bride, Abby, during the summer break of 2001. 

Upon graduation, Pastors Matthew and Abby first pioneered Strong Tower Church in Casper, Wyoming, but shortly after they began the church they felt as though God had called them back to Southwest Riverside County. In October of 2008, The Way Family Church was born.

Pastor Matthew is known for his ability to convey the revolutionary truths of God’s word through his illustrated messages. His passion is to see lives tangibly transformed much like his was at the age of 19, and he delivers his messages in an infectious way. Pastor Matthew’s podcasts have been downloaded in over 35 countries around the world. He has been fortunate enough to be invited to speak in Brazil, New Zealand, Australia and all over The States, but his heart remains with the local church and his desire is to see the city restored, refreshed and made strong through the love of Jesus.
