Rev. Matt Miofsky

Rev. Matt Miofsky is the founding and lead pastor of The Gathering United Methodist Church, a multi-site congregation in the Saint Louis area that was recently named the third-fastest growing United Methodist congregation. Before founding The Gathering in 2006, he earned a degree in advanced mathematics and played football at Washington University, attended Candler School of Theology, and served as an associate pastor in the St. Louis area. 

Passionate about church planting, connecting with new generations, and multi-site ministry, Miofsky frequently speaks and teaches on these subjects. He is the author of Let Go: Leaning Into the Future Without Fear (Abingdon, May 2019), 8 Virtues of Rapidly Growing Churches (Abingdon, 2018), Happy? What It Is and How to Find It (Abingdon, 2017), Fail: What to Do When Things Go Wrong (Abingdon, 2017); and a contributor to Disciple Fast Track: Into the Word, Into the World (Abingdon, 2017), Flipping Church: How Successful Church Planters Are Turning Conventional Wisdom Upside-Down (Discipleship Resources, 2016), and the DVD project Ask: Faith Questions in a Skeptical Age (Abingdon, 2015). 

Miofsky has been elected to serve as a delegate to numerous United Methodist General and Jurisdictional Conferences. He is also passionate about the Mozambique safe water ministry he began through The Gathering. To date this ministry has raised almost $2.2 million for safe water and dug more than 175 wells

When he's not writing, preaching, or teaching, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three
