God’s shelter for weary and hopeful souls, Berea Mennonite Church partners with God in the building of His kingdom. We actively participate in service projects that exist to establish a culture dedicated to the biblical application of peace, social justice, community sharing, and joy.
With a farm that covers 9 acres of land, Berea is an oasis of peace in the midst of an often tense and violent society; it is seated in the heart of hustling and bustling urban Atlanta. Berea Mennonite Church was birthed out of a Mennonite service unit that materialized from the outreach actives established by Hershey and Norma Leaman during the Vietnam War and Civil Rights Movement in the United States (New Georgia Encyclopedia).
Berea became the first interracial church in the South—another attribute of its countercultural stance towards a distracted mainstream society. This historic achievement bore and continues to bear incredible significance as it challenges its members to remember the stranger and to be a people of love and peace to all.
Why does our church farm?
