Eric & Chelsea

Eric & Chelsea Terwilliger

Lead Pastors


Chelsea and I have been in the full-time ministry as a couple for 22 years. The first 15 were spent serving as youth ministers. The past seven years, I served as Executive Pastor and Chelsea as Creative Arts Director at Southpoint Community Church in Jacksonville, Florida. Regardless of what position we have filled throughout the years, our hearts have always been to serve and love the people in our community and help them discover the true compass for their lives, Jesus Christ. We've accomplished this through creative outreach, community service projects, weekly services, missions, and just hanging out with people on a regular day-to-day basis. One of our favorite ways to get to know others is through great conversation over a cup of coffee.  

Over the past several years, Savannah has become one of our absolute favorite places in the United States. We love the small town community with big city excellence. Both Chelsea and I grew up in small towns and deeply appreciate the closeness they provide. So when the time came to explore building a new church community, Savannah was the obvious choice.

Our beautiful 17-year-old daughter, Madison, never ceases to amaze us with all the ways she is growing up by practicing adulting. Is there really any book out there to prepare you for your kids leaving home?

On a normal lazy Saturday, you can find us playing with Habersham (our French Bulldog), reading a good book, watching a black and white movie, drinking way too much coffee, or taking really long walks... maybe all of the above.
