our story

Our desire is to be a life-giving church where people can connect with God and experience His presence and power in a real way.  I extend a personal invitation to you to join us in building this exciting congregation.


Pastor Chris Miller dreamed of planting a church with a simple goal: to help people connect with God so that they might reach their full potential. With the help of the initial Dream Team, 28 people committed to seeing this dream become a reality, Genesis Church began March 22, 2009. That Sunday 107 people attended the first service at the Old Gibbs Memorial Library in Evans, Georgia.

From the beginning, Genesis has focused on reaching those who do not know God personally and building relationships through Small Groups. The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of Sunday service, and the simple style of Genesis brought immediate growth. In our first year, the church grew to 225 people in weekly attendance, and 60 people committed their lives to Christ. At the same time, we gave nearly 15% of our income to missions.

We are a church devoted to changing lives and invite you to be a part; the pages of our story are still being written. Come and believe with us and together let’s dream of the possibilities. We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the fo­cus is simple and people are free to go after God with passion!
