Matt Markarian

Facilities & Logistics Pastor

Born and raised in Fresno, Pastor Matt Markarian has always felt a strong connection to the church he grew up in, Peoples Church.

After graduating from Fresno State with a degree in business management, he and his wife Vanessa owned and managed AOP Embroidery for nearly 13 years. When they sold the business to answer the call to ministry, Pastor Matt felt like he was finally fulfilling his purpose in life.

Pastor Matt is a proud father of one son, and he also enjoys technology and soccer. He's always up for trying the latest gadgets, and he can often be found on the soccer field or watching his beloved Manchester United. He's also has a passion for coaching, and he's been coaching soccer at Fresno Christian High School for the past 30 years.
