Couples' Retreat


Speaker: Matt DeCleene

Matthew DeCleene was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and grew up in Lena, Wisconsin, the twelfth of thirteen children. After graduating from high school, Matt moved to Sturgeon Bay (WI) and attended a Baptist church for about a year before embracing faith in Jesus Christ. He became active in the church by teaching, sharing his faith, and serving as a deacon. Having dated since high school, Matt and Vicki (VanLaanen) were married in March 1983. They have four adult children.

In 1988 Matt left a supervisory position at a car dealership to pursue pastoral ministry and moved his family to Northland Baptist Bible College. After graduation in 1992, the DeCleenes moved to Marinette (WI) to plant Twin City Baptist Church. God providentially provided a building for meetings, and after some much-needed renovations, regular services started on Sunday, May 3, 1993. Matt and Vicki remain in Marinette (Matt serving as pastor) and have enjoyed serving the Lord and seeing His blessing on the ministry.
