Jeremiah Stone



Jeremiah Stone grew up in Northport, AL. After graduating from Tuscaloosa County High School, Jeremiah moved to Montgomery to attend Huntingdon College where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies. While at Huntingdon he worked in a variety of places including Guardian Credit Union and First United Methodist Church Montgomery.

Being a preacher’s kid Jeremiah always said he didn’t want to go into ministry, but God had a different plan. While on a trip to the Holy Land during the Summer of 2015 Jeremiah accepted his call into youth ministry, and later that year, after previously serving in the Children’s Ministries and as a Youth Intern, he joined the staff at FUMC Montgomery full time as the Assistant Director of Student Ministries.

Jeremiah is passionate about communication in youth ministry and one day hopes to obtain a Master’s in Communication Studies to further his research and help other youth ministers better know how to communicate with students. He is also heavily involved with Key Club where he serves on the Alabama Adult Board. When he isn’t with students he enjoys running, adventures, Auburn football, and hanging out with friends and family.
