Our Pastor, Rev. Mari Turner has served in ministry for 25 years in a variety of church settings. She is a graduate of Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, VA with a Master of Divinity and a Master of Arts in Christian Education. Mari and her husband Brett have two adult children.
Our congregation is led by the Session, made up of six Elders who are elected by the congregation for rotating 3-year terms of service. Current members of the Session are Kevin Herrit, Margie Higgins, Melissa Line, Roy Martin, Sarah Widencamp, and Clerk of Session Susan Reese.
Our congregation is “Compelled by God’s love to reach out wherever it takes us to serve.” We are actively involved in serving the Dahlonega/Lumpkin County Community.
Our church family is made up of people from all walks of life and stages in their faith journey. We welcome all of God’s children to come and be a part of our worship and ministry.
Welcome to a caring and compassionate congregation of people just like you. Welcome to a place where you are invited to "come as you are." Your personality, your questions, your experiences, your hopes, your struggles, and your ideas are welcome here. We invite you to join us in our common faith journey as we seek God’s will for our lives and answer God’s call.
