Description of Organization

Meet All Souls Fellowship:

All Souls Fellowship was planted in 2003 by Shayne Wheeler. Through the years, God has grown All Souls to be a dynamic and grace-filled church, committed to serving the Kingdom of God in our city and throughout the world. We desire to see all people transformed by life with Jesus and grow more fully into His image for missional living in the world. Fundamentally, our mission is: To love God in WORSHIP through Christ. To love others in RELATIONSHIP in Christ. To love the world in SERVICE with Christ.

Like the city around us, our church is vibrant and active. We are dedicated to ministry inside and outside our church. Our internal ministries are focused on helping people grow deeper in their relationship with Christ and with one another. On Sunday mornings, we rehearse the story of God’s grace through prayer, confession, singing, communion, and transformative teaching. We worship in an informally liturgical and energetic style, and offer the healing power of the Gospel to Christians and non-Christians alike.

All Souls is a multi-generational community, and our ministries reflect our diverse body. Our children’s and youth ministry is the heartbeat of our church - from singing Bible songs to the babies in our nursery to creatively sharing the Gospel with our elementary school children to walking with our youth as their faith is challenged, honed, and strengthened. For adults, our Community Groups meet during the week to build strong and supportive relationships, centered on Christ and serving His Kingdom together. Our Women’s and Men’s ministries offer opportunities for individuals to meet, share, and build relationships in an inclusive, supportive, and organic environment.

All Souls is likewise committed to serving our city and world through our Local and Global Missions Teams. We seek to mobilize our church family in local activities like after-school tutoring with our immigrant community, serving meals in women’s shelters, and fixing up homes for the elderly. We have also sent many members throughout the world, and provide both financial and relational support as they grow the Kingdom of God. Throughout our history, All Souls has been active in church planting in Atlanta and the Southeast. We believe church planting is an exciting and strategic part of building God’s Kingdom and leading new people to Christ.

We are excited about the future of our church and believe our best years are ahead of us. Over the years, we have consistently seen a movement of the Holy Spirit, leading us into greater intimacy with Jesus and more intentional relationships with one another. Our prayer continues to be for deeper community to be formed both inside and outside our church family, and we are committed to our calling to be a beacon of God’s grace in our city and beyond.

Our City:

Just a few miles east of Downtown Atlanta, Decatur has a small-town feel while boasting nationally recognized restaurants, and a thriving art and music scene. Named the “Best Place to Live in Georgia” in 2019 and one of the South’s “Tastiest Towns,” the New York Times describes Decatur as “where Mayberry meets Berkeley.”

It is easy to get to know your neighbors in our friendly, tree-lined neighborhoods and there is always something to do, whether its listening to live music, walking to an art show, or attending one of our frequent festivals. Decatur boasts excellent, award-winning schools from pre-K through high school. Students perform above state and national averages on standardized tests at all grade levels.

Atlanta is the home of Coca-Cola, Home Depot, UPS, Delta Airlines, AT&T, the CDC, Habitat for Humanity, and countless other major corporations. Agnes Scott College is located in Decatur, and Emory University, Georgia Tech, and Georgia State are just down the road.
