Matt Ozment and his wife, Whitney, live in Mt. Pleasant with their daughters Arah Jane, 2, and Grady, 8 months. God used St. Michael’s to forever change Matt and Whitney’s lives through the Alpha course. God moved through Alpha to lead Matt and Whitney to put God at the center of their lives and marriage. Matt and Whitney went on to participate in Alpha five times and served as co-directors of Alpha this past fall.
In addition to directing Alpha, Matt is active in the Men’s Ministry. Matt started the Men’s Hike with Luke Rasmussen and continues to lead the hike each fall and spring. Matt leads the weekly Thursday Men’s Lunch at 82 Queen. Since the departure of Rich Giersch in January, Matt has spearheaded the effort to unify the Men’s Ministry by organizing a weekly gathering of the Men’s leadership for support, prayer, and planning.
Matt and Whitney started a life group last spring and often host it in their home. Matt’s oldest daughter has gone to Toddler Time for 2 years and will attend again this fall with her little sister. Matt writes a monthly column for the Carolina Compass focusing on millennials and Christianity in modern society.
Matt is an attorney and currently serves as a law clerk to United States Magistrate Judge Mary Gordon Baker. Prior to his clerkship, Matt served as a state prosecutor for four years. His wife Whitney is a veterinarian.
Matt finds it very awkward to write a biography in the third person touting his involvement in church. What matters is that Christ died for Matt, as he did for all of us, and Matt has accepted that call. Matt’s fervent hope is to see the gospel continue to thrive at St. Michael’s through strong ministries and content and stable church staff.
