Pastor: Keith Gunter
Keith has been married to his wife, Amy, for 20 years. They have 3 children: Autumn (13), Noah (11), and Macy (9). In 2011 they made Hendersonville, TN their home from Marietta, GA. Their call to plant a church in this community was a clear moment in which God was guiding them in a new way of experiencing Christ.
