Matthew Winters

I am excited to partner with TJ Petri and Mike Carey in providing caring for the overall health of people. TJ brings years of experience in various areas of social work, Mike brings years of physical health care to the table, and I offer insight from over 20 years of ministry experience. I look forward to providing an additional spiritual element to this page through counseling, coaching, and consulting.

My ministry career began in music ministry in my home church in Portsmouth, Virginia in 1996. I have also served churches in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. I continued in music ministry in addition to Christian school teaching, youth ministry, discipleship and small group ministry, and senior adult ministry until I became a Lead Pastor in 2012. I am a three-time graduate from Liberty University and Theological Seminary: BS in Religion (2003), the MA in Religion (Leadership concentration – 2006), and the Master of Divinity (Pastoral Ministries – 2016). I am currently a hospice chaplain and the Lead/Founding Pastor of Overcomers Church in Walhalla, SC, a brand new church plant that is helping those who have been overcome by life to become Overcomers in Christ. We have a huge vision to break down the socio-economic walls in our community. Whether you are someone seeking answers about religion, a believer who wants counsel, or someone in ministry who needs resources from a practical and authentic standpoint, I am here for you. I am no stranger to depression, divorce, and the challenges that face those who strive to live by faith and want to use the brokenness I experienced and the victory that followed to help all people.
