CP-8Matt has over 17 years of experience influencing the hearts and lives of students from many different backgrounds in many different settings. He has a passion to see students impact a world much bigger than themselves. He currently serves as Campus Pastor at 12Stone Church in Flowery Branch, GA. Whether speaking to students at 12Stone or speaking to adults, Matt’s unique style of presenting deep biblical truths in very practical ways allows him to connect to audiences of any age.

Matt has also enjoyed the privilege of reaching thousands of students across the country as the featured speaker at numerous events, retreats, and camps. While Matt’s ability as a gifted communicator allows him to reach large groups of students in many different settings, you will most often find him spending time one-on-one with students as he believes relationship is the key to changing lives.

Matt holds a Masters in Biblical Studies through Liberty Theological Seminary. When he actually has free time, he enjoys golfing, football, and spending time with his wife, Lyndsey and their three children Amelia, Cooper and Owen.

What Others Are Saying:

“Very rare is the combination of someone being able to communicate deep, rich Biblical truths in a fun, real practical way. Matt Piland is that combination. He is a man of deep conviction, integrity and character. His heart is for the glory of Jesus’ name alone. And perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay Matt is one that is quite simple: I would want my own son and daughters sitting under his influence. The only bad thing about Matt is that he is a die-hard LSU Tiger and Dallas Cowboys fan. But that is my own personal issue!”

“It’s evident by knowing Matt that God has given him both the perspective to see, while also the urgency to respond to a world that’s in need of a Savior. I’ve worked with Matt at both the local church level, as well as shared the platform with him at other events. Matt truly embodies the heart of what a TRUE minister of the gospel should be.”
-Chris Orr, Worship Leader
