Garry Brantley, Senior Minister

Garry has a passion to present God's good news in a meaningful way to those who will hear. He holds B.A., M.A., and M.Div. degrees from Southern Christian University with emphases in Old Testament Theology and biblical languages. In 2000, Garry completed the Doctor of Ministry degree from Columbia Theological Seminary, writing a dissertation addressing the subject of biblical hermeneutics.

Garry has served a variety of churches in Georgia and Alabama, and also worked for several years in the specialized ministry of Apologetics. He has written extensively in the areas of biblical interpretation, Christian evidences, and postmodernism. Garry is the author of the book Digging for Answers, Has Archeology Disproved the Bible (1995).

Garry and his wife, Carol, have four children: Amber, Allen (married to a beloved daughter-in-law, Kim), Zach and Miranda. They also are the very proud grandparents of Hunter. In Garry's own words, "they have filled our home and touched our hearts with the joy of heaven." Garry's personal goals are to seek after God to be the husband, father, grandfather, and minister God has called him to be.

Garry and his family look forward to meeting you!
