We invite you to use the links below to learn more about these organizations.
Presbytery of Greater Atlanta
The Presbytery of Greater Atlanta is a supportive network of 92 churches and over 400 clergy with the mission of helping each to be the best it can be–to connect, equip and empower congregations and people to carry out their missions–especially those objectives particular churches cannot accomplish alone. The focus of our presbytery’s missional life is connecting congregations to each other and to the larger church of Jesus Christ to be a witness to his life and ministry in the world.
We are one of 173 presbyteries (a middle governing body) of the Presbyterian Church (USA). The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is distinctly a confessional and a connectional church, distinguished by the representation of elders — laymen and laywomen — in its government. Our denomination has a membership of 2.3 million in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Learn more
