About Local Church

We’re a family of churches that lead people to fully follow Jesus.

Our Vision

Local Impact Across Local Communities

We now have four unique local churches in Georgia, located in Forsyth, Dawson, Milton, and Canton. They are doing local ministry with local pastors, and we are experiencing Jesus change lives in these communities!

Each of these churches leads people to fully follow Jesus through Biblical teaching, genuine worship, unique next steps, and engagement in their local community.

Our Senior Pastor

Chris Emmitt

Chris is the senior pastor of Local Church and is passionate about creating local churches with local pastors in local communities. While he leads our church in Forsyth County, he also guides and supports our Canton, Milton, and Dawson pastors. Chris’ heart is that each person in these communities takes a step towards fully following Jesus.

In 2005, Chris married the prettiest girl he had ever seen. Together, he and Bre’anna have four wonderful yet crazy kids. When he isn’t being an Uber driver for his kids to all their events, Chris loves to golf, fish, and BBQ on his Big Green Egg.

Chris has a unique way of combining real-life stories and biblical principles that connect with audiences of all sizes. He holds a degree in marketing from Texas A&M University and a master’s degree from Rockbridge Seminary.
