On Jan. 12, 2002, God called Matt and Beth Evans to return to their hometown and start Rock Bridge Community Church. With a core team of around 25 adults, the church held its first worship services in September 2002 in the Wink Theatre with 241 people in attendance. For those who started the church, one number was always in their minds: 50,000. There are 50,000 unchurched people in Whitfield County.

We wanted to start a church where people could invite their unchurched friends—a place where anyone would be loved and presented with the gospel. Today, Rock Bridge has multiple campuses in several northwest Georgia communities, expanding that number well beyond the original 50,000 people. We're just as committed to reaching people for the glory of God as we were when the church started. It's the reason we exist today.
