A glimpse into the rich history of the Cathedral of Christ the King.

Christ the King Church began in a home in Sharpsburg, GA in August 1996 with 19 people. A few weeks later, the church met in a funeral home chapel in Peachtree City. For over six years, the congregation met, grew, and prospered in this venue.

The church acquired 11.5 acres of land in Coweta County and built its first building, a new sanctuary, about six years after its beginning. Two years later, a new Parish Life Center was constructed, which housed a fellowship hall, classrooms, and a kitchen.

In 2007, with the election of the church’s pastor, Father David Epps, to serve as the Bishop of The Diocese of the Mid-South (Georgia and Tennessee), the church was designated a “cathedral,” that is, the headquarters church of the Bishop.

The church regularly hosts clergy gatherings, convocations, and training opportunities. One Presbyterian congregation that was having difficulty finding affordable facilities met rent-free (but paid a token amount for utilities) at CCTK for two years until it found a suitable worship area.

Because of the support we were given in the beginning, we currently host a church startup on Sunday afternoons, providing them with a temporary home until they find their permanent place of worship.

Our commitment to community service extends beyond its immediate congregation. Our facilities have been made available to several non-profit organizations, including Healing for Heroes, the Marine Corps League, East Coweta High School, Girl Scouts of America, and the Williams Syndrome Foundation. This active involvement in the community underscores our belief in the importance of taking the gospel to the world and our dedication to making a positive impact beyond our church walls.

Many church members carry the church’s mission beyond the walls, with at least twenty recognized as “Community Missionaries.” Several men from CCTK have been ordained to the ministry, with four leaving to serve as pastors of other congregations. Several CCTK clergy are serving or have served in the past as chaplains to hospitals, hospices, veterans groups, and law enforcement.

The church strongly supports global and domestic mission efforts, ecumenical relations, and pro-life endeavors. CCTK’s members come from nearly every denomination and non-denominational background.
