Matthew Buckland, son of missionary Roger and Becky Buckland, became part of the missionary family when his parents were appointed to the Philippines in 1984. Having served two terms, they relocated to start a work in the Czech Republic. After graduating from Indiana Bible College, Matthew returned to the field as an AIMer and taught in Bible schools in Eastern Europe. He married Angie in 2004 and worked with the youth group of Pasadena, Texas under the leadership of Brother Glass. While there, he also served as a police chaplain for five years. In 2009, Matthew was elected as the Pastor of Calvary United Pentecostal Church in Richmond, Indiana and served on both the Youth and Sunday School Committee. Brother Buckland also earned his Bachelor’s degree from Great Lakes University and is currently nearing completion of his Masters of Theology degree from Urshan Graduate School of Theology. The Bucklands were appointed in September of 2013 as missionaries to the Czech Republic and plan to facilitate the Bible school and help nationals plant churches throughout central Europe. Along with them on deputation are their two sons, Grant and Pierce.
