Parker Mathias | Assistant Student Ministries Pastor
Hello, my name is Parker Mathias! I am an Assistant Pastor in the Student Ministries. I first started attending VCC when I was 16 years old because a friend invited me to a youth service. That night changed my life forever; I would never be the same!
I was born and raised in Virginia Beach, and I graduated from Princess Anne High School. After I graduated, I was desperate to get out of the city, so I attended George Mason University in Fairfax, VA thinking I was going to be there all 4 years. God had a different plan.
During my Freshman year, I felt God speaking to me that I was going to be a pastor. After I finished my first year at GMU I transferred to Regent University here in Virginia Beach where I completed my B.S. in Psychology. Shortly after my graduation from Regent, I also earned a Bible degree from Vineyard Institute.
I’ve done just about everything from being a pastoral assistant, coordinating events and conferences, building administration and maintenance, and currently young adult and youth ministry. I am passionate about seeing the young people of Hampton Roads trust that God has the best life possible for them!
I also enjoy running, going to the beach, and pizza.
Can’t wait to meet you!
