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 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.
