Rev. Andrew Mattick

Senior Pastor

Pastor Andy came to serve as Senior Pastor of the UMC of Simi Valley in July of 2010.  His passions in ministry are reaching all people through excellence in the arts of worship, preaching, and teaching.  A storyteller, Pastor Andy strives to make the story of our faith in Scripture relevant and lively, practical and personal.  He has a ten-year history of work with youth and families and has a vision for shepherding the ministries of SVUMC to address the needs of the families of our community. 

Andy is married to Rev. Camille Mattick, a deacon who serves as the Pastor of Children, Youth and Family at Simi Valley UMC.  They are blessed with two children, Madelyn and Jackson. As a family, they enjoy the kids' sports, movies, games, and adventures together.  Personally, Andy enjoys riding his bike, technology and computers, guitar, and pop-culture.

Andy grew up in the church in many states including Arizona, California, and Nevada.  A high school graduate from Las Vegas, Andy studied Religious Studies and Sociology at Southern Methodist University and then received his Masters of Divinity from the Claremont School of Theology, where he first met Camille. Commissioned as a Probationary Member in 2007, Andy was ordained an Elder in Full Connection in 2010.
