Welcome to Be. Make. Multiply. Send

Welcome to a website/blog that seeks to help ordinary Christians live and lead with joy by being, making, multiplying, and sending disciple of Jesus! My name is Matthew Perry and I have the joy of serving as Lead Pastor of Arapahoe Road Baptist Church in Centennial, CO. God called me into the ministry in 1992, where I’ve seen many leaders and pastors lead their churches with varying degrees of joyfulness.

Psalm 51 shows David asking God, “Restore unto me the joy of your salvation” (Psalm 51:12). God intends for us to have a joy in all things, even leading God’s people.

Has something stolen your joy? What it is? When did this happen? What triggers to the angst? Who’s at fault?

I do not have all the answers. I’ve set up this blog to navigate the Word and God’s people to examine what can steal the joy, and what tools God has provided from His Word and His people to seize the joy He intends us to have.

In other words, I need this blog every bit as much as anyone else on the planet! We need a joy that is not found in escapism, but grounded in biblical reality.

Check us out on social media:


  1. Hey Dr. Matt, I found this video really encouraging. I’m a young pastor feeling that angst and frustration at times with my people and ministry in general and you are right on the money. The joy of knowing Christ and leading His people to find joy in Him is vital. God bless you and your ministry!
