Dr. Don Martin

I grew up in the northeast Atlanta community of Chamblee, Georgia. I’ve seen the metro area grow from less than half a million to the 6 million people who call this peach of a city their home. My journey in education began in the DeKalb County School System and led me to Mercer University, Emory University and the University of Chicago. I love sports – especially college ball, hunting and fishing – and would rather hit a golf ball than eat.

My wife Lisa and I have been married more than 30 years and have two sons. Taylor is a graduate of the University of Georgia, and Aaron is a graduate of Auburn University.

Christ and the church became everything to me when I was a teenager. Living with our faces turned toward God and our ears open to the Lord Jesus is what the Christian life is all about to me. I invite you to join the Alpharetta First United Methodist Church for lively worship, meaningful service, and real friendship. You will be assured of God’s forgiving love and challenged to put your faith into action.

Ya’ll Come,


Don Martin
