My name is Matt Seel and I am the pastor of Petrie Memorial UMC. I have served as a pastor in the Kentucky Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church since 2004. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Bible & Theology from Asbury University in 2003, and my Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary in 2007.
While in seminary I served as a part-time Student Pastor from 2004-2007 at Kings Mountain UMC and McKendree UMC. I also served as the Associate/Youth Pastor at New Beginnings UMC during that same 3 year period.
I have served as a full-time pastor since 2007. I served as the Associate at Hopkinsville First UMC from 2007-2011. I was appointed to Winchester Trinity UMC after my ordination as an Elder in 2011. I served at Trinity from 2011-2016.
I have been married to my beautiful wife, Abby, since September 4, 2010 and we have two children: Joel (5) and Nora (1). Abby is a stay-at-home mom and the best wife and mother of our children I could have ever asked for!
I welcome you to Petrie Memorial and hope you’ll join us for worship!
