1001 New Worshiping Community Assessments

The Presbytery of Greater Atlanta is full of exciting new worshiping communities. In fact, we have 26 communities currently under care, and if you are feeling called to start a community, let's talk.

We want to help visionary leaders discern whether or how they might prepare for this ministry, and we want to identify strong leaders for this demanding yet energizing call. As you read this, we are preparing and recruiting potential church starters to take part in a 3 ½-day assessment in Atlanta (November 11-14).

This is a time when leaders discern how their own leadership style, strengths and capabilities lend themselves to start up. The New Church Development Commission has two scholarships for PGA members who are interested.

If you are interested, if you'd like to be considered for a scholarship, or if you'd like to nominate a candidate, please get in touch with NCDC Executive Director Lindsay Armstrong at

NCDC will host 1001 New Worshiping Communities Discerning Missional Leadership Assessments at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur on November 11-14, 2019.

Please register for Assessments by October 4.
