Our Staff

North Point's staff is committed to our core vision of sharing Christ and building believers. By Connecting with God, Serving Him with their lives, and Growing their families as followers of Christ, the North Point staff shepherds the flock God has entrusted to them (1 Peter 5:2).

  • Matt Branum

    As Lead Pastor of North Point my job is to share vision and strategize how to make God’s purpose for this church a reality. I love seeing people grow in their relationship with Christ, and helping them achieve their full potential as a child of God. Whether it is through preaching and teaching, being a part of a LifeGroup, or having coffee at the Blackbird, I thoroughly enjoy authentic conversation and building relationships.


    Becky and I moved to Spearfish in 2004 from Cincinnati, where I was on staff at a Christian university and she was a Registered Nurse at Children’s Hospital. For her it was like coming home (she grew up in Rapid City), for me it was a small adjustment (having grown up just north of the Twin Cities). We are blessed with a girl who loves music and dance, and a boy that loves baseball and camouflage. So I find myself at many concerts, recitals, and coaching baseball.

  • Kevin Moore

    I'm a learner of Jesus, husband to Amy, and Associate Pastor of North Point. Some of my favorite things are quality conversation, mountain biking, and a great cup of coffee (once in a while, I can manage all three on the same day!).


    As North Point's Associate Pastor, I get to help people connect with God. This means overseeing Sunday Celebrations and making it possible for people to be in groups together. I also help our Communications Team develop digital and print media so that the Northern Hills can know about North Point. What we do as a church family flows from who we are in Christ, so it's exciting to see people connect with God and grow as followers of Jesus.


    My wife and I love living in the Black Hills because of the amazing places to explore and people to meet. Amy works as an office manager and loves creating art, cooking healthy food, and playing volleyball. We are grateful to be part of the Church and want everyone to know about Jesus!
