A Ministry of Healing and Reconciliation

Mount Ephraim has been a vibrant member of Atlanta's spiritual community for more than 40 years.  Our church started with only 12 members in 1970 in the apartment of the Rev. Dr. R.L. White and has become a pillar of the region's religious community.

From its humble beginnings in Rev. White's living room Mount Ephraim moved to a storefront at 112 Hurt Street in Decatur, then to another storefront at 59 Haynes Street in Atlanta and finally to its first church home at 815 Fox Street, the former home of Greater Moses Chapel. It remained on Fox Street for 14 years until it outgrew the building and built a new facility at 1202 West Marietta Street, its current location.

Over its more than 40 years, Mount Ephraim has added thousands of members and a number of ministries; one of the most prominent being its Music Ministry, led our pastor and vocalist, the Rev. White.  The music ministry has produced 14 albums, one of which climbed to number 24 on the Billboard Magazine Gospel Chart.

Our church also has an AIDS Ministry, an Angel Food Ministry, a Cancer Awareness Ministry, a Dance Ministry and a Little Lambs Ministry.  The Angel Food Ministry is group of men who help supply quality food at lower cost to the elderly, the shut-in and the financially disabled.  The Little Lambs Ministry helps relieve the pressure for adult parents by providing care for their children while regular service is in progress.  Other ministries include a Helping Hands Ministry, Drama Ministry, Homeless Ministry, Audio Ministry, Video Ministry and the Robert Owens Ministry, which inspires and helps the sick and shut-in and unsaved at home as well as abroad.

In addition, our church has a wide array of programs to support members and families, such as Grief Support, ITC Class, Sunday School, Noon Inspiration, the Scouts Program, Pastor's AID Club, Praise Team and numerous choirs.

Mount Ephraim is your Christian home away from home.   Our doors are always open to you, your family and friends.
