Matt Souza grew up spending most of his time playing video games, but always felt a sense of fear of what people would think of him if they found out that he was secretly a gamer. After many years of dealing with insecurity from this, God took him on a journey of understanding, and brought him to the realization that God loved him just the way he was. Not only that, but that he could use his love for video games to make a difference in people’s lives.


During his senior year of college, in January of 2014 Souzy married his beautiful wife Amanda Souza. A few months later both Pastor Matt and Amanda received their bachelor’s degree from Northpoint Bible College. Souzy received his degree in Pastoral Ministry and Biblical Theology and Amanda received hers in Music/Worship Ministry and Biblical Theology.

Shortly after graduation Souzy stumbled across an interactive and community based website called where people go on to watch others play video games. He first clicked on a successful broadcaster by the name of Summit1G who at the time had 25,000 people watching him. It was at that moment that he realized “this is how we are going to reach gamers”.


Within a few short weeks Souzy started broadcasting live where people from all over the world and all walks of life would come and watch him play video games, but while played he began to teach them about God’s love for gamers. Very quickly his stream began to grow to where it is now with tens of thousands of followers with people from all over the world. Every day Souzy has the privilege to share the love of Jesus with gamers on his stream first-time guests come through his stream to hear the beautiful life-changing story of Jesus. As the founder and Pastor of GodSquad Church, Souzy has dedicated his life to this mission of leading gamers From Virtual Life to Eternal Life.

Souzy has also launched a Discord and community called Unity Gaming which is on a mission to bring an end to toxicity and loneliness in the gaming community. Unity Gaming is a community full of people from all different backgrounds and beliefs. Souzy launched this out of the passion to be able to live like Jesus did by having a regular outlet to be around people who do not believe in God and to love and serve them.

Souzy hopes that through this life, both the ups and downs, that He can live His life in a real and authentic way that will help gamers around the world what it truly means to follow Jesus and if they choose, to follow Him as well.
