  • Briggs Smith

    Pastor

    Greetings. I grew up in Decatur — not far from University Heights UMC. I received a Master of Divinity Duke Divinity School in 2018 and am an ordained Elder in The United Methodist Church. Prior to coming to University Heights, I served for three and one half years as the Associate Pastor of Carrollton First United Methodist Church in Carrollton.

    I was recently married to Wesley Caple, who works in International Marketing at the UPS Headquarters, so we are happy to be back in Atlanta. Wesley and I enjoy working out, cooking, music and traveling. 

    Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” I have carried this verse in my heart throughout my faith journey and believe that God has great plans for University Heights UMC. 

    I feel so blessed to be serve as your pastor at University Heights UMC and am honored to share this journey with you. 


    To God be the glory!
