Rev. Matt Stone came to Dunwoody UMC from Dayspring UMC in Tyler, Texas, where he served as Lead Pastor. A native Texan, Matt has more than 12 years of service to the UMC in Kansas and Texas. He attended seminary at Southern Methodist University, where he received a Master of Divinity. Matt is passionate about Wesleyan expressions of faith that hold together the ideas of personal faith and social responsibility. He believes that we live the gospel most fully when we pay attention to both our relationship with Christ and our call to love the world in ways that bring about the Kingdom of God on earth. Matt and his wife Margaret live in Dunwoody with their two children, Charlotte and Jackson. They are thrilled to serve their new community in this exciting chapter of ministry at Dunwoody United Methodist Church.
Matt oversees Next Generation Ministries (Children and Youth) for DUMC.
