Pastor Mathew Feeley

Get To Know The Speaker

Pastor Mathew Feeley was born and raised in Toronto. The early years of his life were troubled and characterized by drug abuse and crime. Fortunately, God intervened and at the age of 17 and Pastor Feeley became a Seventh-day Adventist after attending a Youth Week of Prayer at the Scarborough Seventh-day Adventist church.

 

He never planned on becoming an Adventist and he never planned on becoming a Pastor. In fact, he spent some time running away from God's will like Jonah. But eventually, Pastor Feeley listened to the advice of his church elders and his Pastor and accepted God's call to Pastoral Ministry. He studied at Burman University in Alberta and later did his Master of Divinity at Andrews University in Michigan.

 

Currently, he is the Senior Pastor of the Ottawa East Seventh-day Adventist church. Evangelism has been a large part of Pastor Feeley's ministry. He has spent much of his time as a Pastor conducting evangelistic series -  throughout Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, the Philippines, and Brazil. 

 

Pastor's Feeley's goal is to be a channel of grace and to help others know that Savior who saved him 17 years ago. He is ever thankful for the loving support of his dear wife Kristy and son Ayden.
