Meet our Pastor
Pastor Jared Newlove grew up in a Christian home in Santa Maria, California. However, it was not until the age of twenty-one that Jared received Jesus Christ as His personal Savior. Believing that God would have him be a Christian school teacher, He graduated from Crown college of the Bible in Powell, TN with a degree in Secondary Education. Jared taught two years of Christian School in Acworth, GA before meeting Krysten Palla. Jared and Krysten married in 2006. A year later, Jared felt the calling of God on His life to preach and pastor. He and Krysten moved to Powell, TN where Jared received a Master's of Missiology from Crown Seminary. Soon after, the Lord opened the door for them to minister in Albuquerque, NM. Jared became the Associate Pastor then Senior Pastor of the Good News Baptist Church. God called Pastor Newlove to Antioch Baptist Church in January of 2016. His desire is to reach Jonesboro and the greater Atlanta area for Jesus Christ.
Krysten Newlove grew up in Charlston, WV. She received the Lord Jesus as her Savior in Sunday School at the age of five. Krysten attended Ambassador Baptist College in North Carolina and received a degree in Elementary Education. She taught Christian School in West Virginia before moving to the Atlanta area. Krysten met Jared at Harvest Baptist Church in Acworth, and they married a year later. Since then, she has been serving the Lord by Jared's side.
Mackenzie is Jared and Krysten's oldest child. She enjoys reading, learning the piano, and picking on her sister.
Madison is Pastor and Krysten's middle child. She loves to sing, play school, and make up new words that don't make sense.
This is Owen. He's....a mess.
