Like many black churches, St. Matthews started small and grew bigger over time. Rev. Sass started the church at a storefront which expanded in 1967.
Reverend Lisa Jenkins served as pastor at Blessed Trinity Baptist Church on W. 129th St. prior to coming to St. Matthews Baptist. She is also a community activist for Community Board 10 in East Harlem.
