Matt Sturdevant is the Lead Pastor at Hope Church in Fort Worth, TX. Hope was started in 1978 by Harold Bullock. Hope Church has been part of the 17:6 Network since the network began.
The 17:6 Network has greatly impacted my life personally and professionally. When I was a college student in Southern California in the late 1990s, before the network had been formed, I was first introduced to it’s culture and values by attending Pierpoint Church. That experience radically changed my life and it was at that time that I caught the vision to personally seek training and development and be part of something much larger than myself. Today, as I lead the staff at Hope Church, the Network continues to provide training and development opportunities for me and those I lead. It also provides a community, a tribe to run with, of those who are like hearted and likeminded. The training programs offered by 17:6 Network additionally offer unique, one of a kind experiences for our church members to grow personally in their walk with God and develop real, practical skills to lead out in our church. – Matt Sturdevant
