our staff


  • Pastor Mark and Lequita planted ALC in August of 2001.  With a vision from God, they launched a church from nothing in one of the fastest growing areas in the country.  Pastor Mark is a well-known resident of North Georgia with rich community connections and Lequita has a heart to see children grow into thriving disciples.  They have two adult children, Jay and Maggie.  In 2016, they began a ministry close to their hearts, reaching people in Nobere, a region in Burkina Faso, Africa.  Hope For Burkina Faso currently contains a school, with future plans to build a clinic, mission house, orphanage, and a church in a densely populated muslim community.  

  • Chris has been serving at ALC since June 2005 and part of the pastoral staff since April 2007. He currently oversees the Student Ministry as well as the daily back-office operations of the church. Chris has a passion to see the body of Christ work together in full capacity to reach the community, and see guests become family and take their next steps as fully devoted followers of Jesus. He has lived in Forsyth County all his life and is the proud owner of a Pug puppy named Dolly. In his free time he enjoys graphic design, reading, outdoor projects, and visiting coffee shops around metro-Atlanta.

  • Branon and Jennifer have been serving as Worship Pastors since November 1999. They joined the ALC Team in July 2013. They have both had a passion for music and worship from a young age. More than anything, their desire is to see people experience the kind of freedom that can only be found in the presence of God. They enjoy spending time with their two wonderful sons, Will and Nate. Some of their hobbies include: trips to new places, trying new restaurants, cooking, and time well spent with family and friends.


  • Marshal and Brittany have been serving at ALC since 2011 and part of the staff since September 2012.
