Founding and Lead Pastors

Keller, Matt and Sarah

Matt and Sarah Keller are the founding and Lead Pastors of Next Level Church, Fort Myers, Florida. God has used them to lead the church from 35 people in 2002 to several locations across southwest Florida and a relational network where they pour into pastors globally. With a passion for the local church, God’s people, and freedom they have dedicated their lives to pouring into the local church leaders and creating resources to help God’s people become everything they were created to be.

Matt is the author of four previous books, The Up the Middle Church, God of the Underdogs, The Key to Everything, and Donkey Mission. Matt and Sarah are high school sweethearts and the parents of two sons, Will and Drew. Together, their family loves to watch baseball and root for the Tampa Bay Rays.


We exist to lead people to become fully engaged followers of Jesus.
