Church Planting Resident

All Souls Fellowship was planted in 2003 and is part of the Presbytery of the Southeast of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. We have had a direct hand in five church plants and are working toward the goal of planting a church in the Southeast every year.

 

Who are we?

All Souls is located in Decatur, Georgia, just about 4 miles directly east of downtown Atlanta. Decatur is an “Ur-burb” (Urban Suburb), having many of the benefits and challenges of living in the city, but on a more manageable scale.

All Souls is a casual-liturgical environment that stresses loving God with passion; loving others with openness, honesty and grace; and serving our community as an expression of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We have a fun, flexible and experienced staff committed to developing the next generation of leaders and empowering them to lead the Church in bringing the Gospel to bear on our city and our world. We value working as a cohesive and supportive team, always willing to pitch in and do whatever it takes to help.
