Matt Carter serves as Pastor of Preaching and Vision at Austin Stone Community Church, which has grown from a core team of 15 to over 7000 attending each Sunday.
His desire for Austin Stone to be a church not just in the city, but for the city, led to the creation of the For the City Network, an organization that pursues the redemption and renewal of Austin by developing communities and connecting people.
In addition to pastoring at The Austin Stone, Matt is a cancer survivor, co-author of four books and speaker for camps and conferences nationwide. He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Southwestern Seminary. Matt and his wife, Jennifer, live in Austin with their three children.
