The Atlanta proper only has about 470,000 people, the greater metro area houses over 5 million, making this region the 9th largest in the country. While being in the bible belt, Atlanta has a growing population of internationals and post-christian individuals who desperately need the gospel of Jesus Christ.
New Branch is an established church plant in the greater Atlanta-metro area, led by Pastor Ken Rucker. Ken is a board member for Pillar and the regional director for Generation Link.
Parkside is still in the pre-launch phase of church planting; partnering with Blueprint Church to build a new, biblical congregation in the city limits of urban Atlanta. Their lead pastor is Chris White, who played college baseball and studied at SEBTS.
