Fred Hartley, Lead Pastor
We love our Pastor and his family. Fred and Sherry Hartley moved to Lilburn with their four children in 1988. He has served as our Lead Pastor of One Mission Church and has navigated us through significant change, as we have becoming an inter-cultural, multi-national, Christ-encountering, disciple-making, church-planting congregation in northeast Atlanta. Fred and Sherry both graduated from Wheaton College. Fred received his graduate degree from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. He and Sherry have four children who are all married and they now have 15 grandchildren. Fred’s father, Al Hartley, was a professional cartoonist illustrating “Archie” comics. Fred has authored more than 20 books including his newest, Ignite.
In addition to being our Pastor, Fred is the founder and President of the College of Prayer International with 104,224 campuses worldwide currently serving over 5 million pastors and Christian leaders. For fun he enjoys running, spoiling his grandchildren, and an occasional game of golf.
Fred's passion for Christ and His kingdom is infectious. His gifts of preaching and leadership continue to serve us well.
"And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ," Ephesians 4:11-12
