CLASSES – Spring & Summer
Hope and Healing
6 Weeks | Sundays 9:15 A.M. | April 15-May 20th.
Choices and circumstances create opportunities and in some cases circumstances. We tend to deal with things independently missing out on the life-giving nature of relationship with God, ourselves, and others. Anxiety, Depression, Addiction, and Preventable death are all areas where we tend to “fight” alone, but where life hurts God does in fact heal. During this six-week class we are going to unpack these topics in hopes of better understanding our struggles and inviting God to direct us along pathways of peace.
Open to anyone.

Director of Congregational Care, The Church of the Apostles
I grew up in Alpharetta Georgia and have been shaped by the love of God throughout my life. Before attending Toccoa Falls Bible College I met my wife Jenny, since then we have been in ministry together. By God’s grace and truth, I am a recovered addict / alcoholic and graduate of No Longer Bound. I have served as a recovery and youth Pastor in Atlanta with a heart for people and their pain for the last ten years. I am also a recent graduate from Fuller Theological Seminary. Jenny and I have been entrusted to love and lead three daughters Eliza, Olivia, and Emma Drew. It is a blessing and honor to have been called into Congregational Care at The Church of The Apostles. My wife met the Lord in this great church and I formerly served as a youth pastor here in STS. We are excited to see what God has for us and wants to do through us.
God has given me a heart for people and how we together might look to his Word for power and hope as we each face the human struggle. It is a true blessing to journey with Dr. Youssef and the congregation as we seek God’s heart for this city and world. We look forward to growing with each of you. If you are a visitor, looking for a church home, we invite you to grown in faith, hope, in Christ, at Church of The Apostles.
