Atlanta

Why Atlanta?

A common misconception about this highly influential city is that there is no need for new churches, but this could not be further from the truth. Though there may seem to be a church on every corner, the truth is there is little gospel presence. It is estimated that 92% of one million people living inside the I-285 perimeter (the urban core) have no inclination toward church. The city of Atlanta is a juxtaposition of wealth and success set alongside violence, drugs, human trafficking, and poverty. Specifically, the east Atlanta area has been historically known as a dangerous and undesirable area. In recent years, this area has seen a wave of new life and is now one of the most up and coming areas of Atlanta with young families and young professionals moving in by the droves. As it currently stands, east Atlanta has “everything” anyone could desire, except a strong church presence. Those moving into this area have a deep desire for community but have never experienced the true community of the family of God.

Christian and Kimmie White

Christian was born in Fulton County and raised in Hampton, Georgia. As a proud Georgia native, he grew up loving the Atlanta Braves, Falcons, and going to Georgia Tech baseball games as a kid. Christian and his beautiful wife, Kimmie, have an interesting story. Knowing each other in high school, Kimmie played a major role in bringing Christian to faith in Christ. Just a few months into his new faith, Christian convinced Kimmie to go on a date with him. Exactly four years later to the day, they became married - that was 2010! Christian and Kimmie have three incredible kids: Charlieanne, Madeline, and Brady. Christian loves being with people, especially his family.

Fast-Forward to Fall, 2018

After developing relationships in the community and much planning, the Whites launched Parkside Church!

COVID & 2021

COVID-19 demanded that the Whites and Parkside Church look at Atlanta differently. In 2021, Parkside joined Morningside Baptist Church to be a gospel light in a different section of Atlanta. Christian is the pastor.
