Leonard Akers

Leonard has been our senior pastor since June of 2016.  Prior to serving as a full-time pastor, Leonard enjoyed a wonderful career with a large plumbing distribution company where he ended his time as an operations manager.  As someone who was away from church (and really away from God) for a good bit of his life, Leonard has a heart for meeting people where they are and reminding them of how much God loves them.  Leonard graduated from the University of Georgia in 1989 with a BBA in Finance.  While he was sure he was never going back to school, he then received his Master’s of Divinity from Candler School of Theology at Emory in 2008.  Leonard has been married to Emily since 1993 and they are blessed to be caring for three children: Lindsay, Benjamin and Jaden.
