Our Leadership


Pastor Matthew ballmann 

Matthew is a fifth generation Texan and grew up near Glen Rose, Texas with his parents, brother, and five sisters. 

Matthew has worked in construction, business, medicine, and higher education, but most enjoys serving the local congregation. Before moving back to Texas, he had the joy and privilege of serving as a pastor for five years at Abiding Savior Free Lutheran Church in Sioux Falls, SD.  Matthew is passionate about helping people come to know God's love and forgiveness through Christ Jesus. 

Matthew graduated with a BSBA in International Business from Thomas Edison State University, a Master of Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, and a Master of Theology from Concordia University Irvine. 

Matthew is married to his wife Natalie who was born and raised in Colorado but came to Texas as soon as she could. They met while both studying at Dallas Seminary, married soon after, and now have four beautiful children. 

The whole family has been blessed and humbled to be part of what God is doing in building His Church in San Antonio!
