Matt Carver, Senior Minister
Since August 2020
Matt Carver is the senior minister for the Burnt Hickory Church of Christ in Marietta, Georgia. He is married to DeAnna, and together they have a daughter, Adelynn Blair, and a son, Silas Grant. Matt received his Bachelors degree in Business Management from Western Kentucky University in 2007, after which he began a career in manufacturing. In the winter of 2011, after years of nudges and pushes from God, he left manufacturing for full-time ministry. He went on to complete a Master of Apologetics degree at Luther-Rice Seminary and a Master of Divinity at Mid-Western Baptist Theological Seminary. Matt’s heart is to see lives and communities changed by the gospel, and this is the central focus of his ministry. He also loves books, writing, coffee, music, nature, wrestling with his kids, and hanging out with his wife.
