Who We Are

Mike Hardy

Senior Pastor
… originally from Covington Ga, and I’ve been married to my best friend, Jackie for 30 years. Our two kids are grown and married and we have one fantastic granddaughter! I love reading, and playing a little golf, but I really enjoy spending time with my family.
My favorite scripture verse is Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. (NASB).
No, wait it is Job 19:23-27
“Oh that my words were written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book! “That with an iron stylus and lead They were engraved in the rock forever! “As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth. “Even after my skin is destroyed, Yet from my flesh I shall see God; Whom I myself shall behold, And whom my eyes will see and not another. My heart faints within me!”(NASB)
No, wait, it is…All of them!
My true passion is to live and lead authentic lives of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ!

Married to Wanda and we have four beautiful daughters; Nichole, Jessica, Hannah and Sarah. I enjoy going to car shows and air shows – anything fast!

One of my favorite verses: John 4:23-24 – Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
