As we join God in the renewal of all things, we are continually shaped by what we value most.
We desire to be fully present to God and others. We then embody His presence as we love our neighbors, being fully present to those God has entrusted to our care.
- We make space daily to interact with God
- We invite God’s transformation through the Scriptures
- We engage regularly in corporate worship
In a complex world, we find peace in simplicity. We practice rhythms of margin and rest, accepting our limits as a gift from God and creating space for the slow work of God.
- We embrace silence and solitude
- We practice rhythms of rest and margin
- We ruthlessly eliminate hurry
Jesus desires to thoroughly transform us by healing our inner brokenness and restoring us to wholeness. As we actively surrender the deeper parts of our lives to Him, we can begin to truly love both our neighbors and ourselves.
- We pursue emotional health to love others well
- We invest deeply in God-given relationships
- We serve from an overflow of growing union with Christ
Rather than comfortably consuming spiritual goods, we sacrificially practice the way of Jesus by releasing our need for comfort, certainty, approval, and security.
- We prioritize the needs of others over personal comfort
- We serve and give generously to the mission of the Parish
- We take our place in God’s mission of restoration while sacrificing for the marginalized and poor
We are a people among whom those who look or think differently can be united in love and fellowship, centered on the person and grace of Jesus Christ.
- We walk with others in love and intentional community, in spite of differences
- We bridge cultural, racial, economic and gender barriers for Christ
- We embrace the gifts of the global and historical Church
Though they met in Colorado, Jordan hails from California and Holly (his wife) is a Hoosier. They share a love for ministry leadership at the intersection of spiritual formation and emotional health. Jordan holds a Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation and Leadership and has a pastoral ministry background spanning nearly two decades. Holly is a clinical counselor specializing in trauma therapy.
They have 3 wonderful kids – Makenna, Brooklyn, and Noah. Jordan loved the San Diego Chargers until they moved to LA. Now he feels disillusioned. These days, Jordan and Holly love good coffee the most, because these kids wake up early.

Worship & Community
David and his wife, Keely, are happiest in a hammock at springtime. If you can’t find them outside, they are likely at home reading, cooking, napping, or playing piano. After falling in love, graduating from college, and finally getting married (2015), they moved to Atlanta where David is a teacher at Mount Pisgah Christian School and Keely is a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner.
The youngest of four, David grew up in a musical family. His mom fondly recalls stories of baby Dave whistling to hymns in the church pew while the rest of the family smiled and sang. From those humble roots, he has been leading and worshipping in churches most of his life.
Coordination & Administration
Morgan grew up in Florida and met her husband Eric while attending Stetson University. They both have political science degrees and a deep, deep love for tacos. Morgan has a heart for helping others and caring for God’s people. Eric and Morgan spent the early part of their marriage building community in a small church and serving together in ministry.
When she is not chasing their son E.J. around, Morgan loves to play tennis throughout the week. At any given moment, she’d love to talk about the Enneagram with you.
Bethany & John Miller
High School Ministry
John and Bethany were born and raised in Orange County, California. They met at a youth group event during their senior year of high school, and were married in 2010. The first decade of their marriage has been an adventure that has brought them from full-time youth ministry at their church in Southern California, through six years in the military to their new life here in Georgia.
Bethany is a mortgage loan officer, and John is finishing up his accounting degree and set to begin work as an auditor for EY in the fall of 2020. Bethany is a #AdoptDontShop advocate and lover of all animals (except snakes and spiders), while John is passionate about many things, not least of which is Dodgers baseball and binge watching old episodes of The Office.
Rebecca grew up in East Cobb, and is now a seminary student at Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. She just completed her first year of their Master of Divinity program, and is preparing for the priesthood. Rebecca also holds a Bachelors of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies from Wheaton College in Illinois. She has lived abroad a total of 15 months, split between Uganda and Cameroon.
When she is not at The Parish, you can find Rebecca playing the piano, laughing with friends, and hugging cute children. She is excited to join us this summer!
The Vestry is a collective of primarily-lay leaders who work hand-in-hand with our pastoral team to provide our church with practical and spiritual leadership. While the pastoral staff leads the direction and execution of our ministry efforts and community care on a daily basis, the Vestry oversees the organizational, financial, and “temporal” matters that make up our church life. The Vestry also comes together regularly to provide discernment, counsel, and support around each step in our community’s journey.

The Parish is a fresh expression of an ancient faith, rooted in the history and tradition of the Anglican Church.
We belong to a worldwide Anglican Communion, constituting the third largest Christian body globally. The Anglican Church in North America unites 112,000 Anglicans in nearly 1,000 congregations across the United States, Canada, and Mexico into a single Church. As Anglicans, we hold to the via media, or “middle way.” This middle way teaches us to make room for all we see in Jesus, trusting him to unite us even in the midst of differences.
The Parish is a part of a specific group of Anglican communities called Churches for the Sake of Others (C4SO). Under the leadership of Bishop Todd Hunter, C4SO seeks to announce, embody, and demonstrate the Kingdom of God.
