Matt and Kim Goss

Worship Leaders

View Bio

Born in Lewisburg and raised in Jonestown and Lancaster, Matt grew up in a very musical family and started ministering through music at a young age. They toured as “The Goss Family” and often sang and performed in churches across Pennsylvania. On his own, Matt played at school dances, coffee houses, and youth groups throughout high school and college. A big kid at heart with a dry humor, and a constant ability to make people laugh, Matt’s quick wit is the source of lots of laughs around the office and in practices.

Matt earned his two-year music certificate from Berklee College of Music in Boston. He has served as LCBC’s worship leader since May of 1999. Matt shares that his philosophy of ministry is “to prepare the way for the Holy Spirit to open hearts and minds to genuine worship through the arts.” He is an accomplished vocalist, pianist, guitarist, bassist, drummer, tubist, composer, arranger, choir director and, of course, worship leader. From August to January, you’re likely to find Matt talking Eagles football and coaching from his armchair.

His other passions include motorcycles, pretzel dogs and long johns. Matt and his wife Kim have been married since 1996 and live in Lititz with their four children: Isabella, Caleb, Lilah and Adeline.


Matt Fore

Saturday Night Comedian

View Bio

Matt Fore was born at an early age on October 26, 1958 in the small mountain village of Morristown, Tennessee or it may have been somewhere up north. Anyway, for a while he was all pinkish and could barely see or speak. His hands were so small that he had to use bridge size playing cards to do a one handed cut and Hofzinger spread control because the standard blue backed Tally Ho poker cards were too big. He spent what seemed like months just lying around and drinking. Fifty some odd years later he is a professional magician, sleight of hand artist and entertainer with over twenty-five years of experience having performed, in that time, for literally dozens of people.

Matt’s interest in trickery began when he was still very short. He had a very keen and alert brain and a very keen and alert brain as well as a brain that was very alert and keen. Naturally he wanted to be a nuclear physicist but his parents encouraged him to be a sleight of hand artist. Go where the money is@ they would say and they were right as today he earns, let’s just say, four figures. There is no doubt that he will someday be a world famous magician so if you see him now you will be able to say that you knew Matt Fore when he was absolutely nobody.

Matt currently lives in East Tennessee and spends much of his time on the road as the featured entertainer for many corporate functions, church-wide events, sports evangelism celebrations, banquets and conventions. He has performed throughout the Caribbean on Carnival Cruise Lines and was an opening act for Crystal Gayle. He has appeared in a music video with Taylor Swift and has performed on several national TV Shows including the Crook & Chase show on TNN, Fox Sports and The Dennis Swanburg Show. He has also performed numerous times at the famed Magic Castle in Hollywood, California.

But the list doesn’t stop there. Matt has also performed at Carnegie Hollister’s birthday party, The Grand Ole Opportunity House and Johnny Carson Smith’s Wholesale Pork and Packaging. He has also attended concerts by some very famous groups including Three Dog Night and The Marshall Tucker Band and has watched many famous television programs. He wears a size 11 shoe. Sometimes 10 1/2 depending on the brand because some brands are too narrow causing unnecessary discomfort and unexplainable facial expressions at the wrong time. Like when someone is telling a joke.
