Alissa RothschildLead Pastor
My husband, Joe, and I moved to Georgia in 2004 from San Diego, CA where were both raised and where our parents still live. Joe and I did not grow up in the faith – and, it wasn’t until we moved to Georgia that we were baptized and Jesus took root in our lives and changed everything.
I know first hand what it is like to live life without God and I know how hopeless, empty, and broken life can seem. I know how lonely life can be without the beauty of community. And, I also know that, with Jesus, all of these things can change – radically.
My greatest desire in life is to help people understand that there is more to life than this – both for non-Believers and Believers alike.
Joe and I have been married for 20 years and have three kiddos. Brennan is 16 and plays competitive paintball (yup, that’s a thing!) and really likes cars – fast cars. Keaton is 15 and is into singing and acting (and playing video games). Meili (pronounced May-Lee) is 11 and she loves horses and is quite the artist (especially if what she is drawing is a dragon or an imaginary creature).

Things I Like
I really enjoy getting lost in a good book, cooking for my family & friends, and pottery – which is my newest hobby (in other words, I am pretty terrible at it, but I like it a lot).
