General Info


David Patterson is the lead pastor. He was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, where he earned a mechanical engineering degree from Georgia Tech, and much later in life, a masters degree from Luther Rice Seminary. In between degrees, he worked for more than 20 years in engineering and management positions with both small and Fortune 500 companies. He heard God's call to leave that career to start River Cross Church in 2005. He is passionate about helping people hit the pause button in their rat race, and think about eternal things with the hope they will begin to see who God really is, and not who the world says He is.
