Meet Our Team
Matt Archer | Lead Pastor
Matt was born and raised in Central New York. After graduating from high school he attended Crown College in St. Bonifacius, Minnesota where he played football and baseball, met the love of his life and felt God calling him into pastoral ministry. 
Matt and Shellie have been married for 29 years and they've raised three beautiful daughters together. All three of their girls were born in Cheyenne, Wyoming where Matt served as a Youth Pastor for 10 years. From Wyoming they made ministry stops in Washington and Minnesota, before eventually coming full-circle back to Baldwinsville.
In 2011, Matt accepted the call to redevelop and restart New Hope Church (formerly Baldwinsville Alliance Church).  As the Lead Pastor of New Hope, Matt provides teaching, vision, and guidance to the church. His greatest passion in ministry is discovering what it means to love God, love the Church and love the world.
When he's not focusing on the role of Pastor, Matt enjoys being outdoors, finding a new Jeep trail, creating music and playing ice hockey.
