Oconee Presbyterian Church

Oconee Presbyterian Church is a loving family of faith who believes God calls us to:
•Invite in all people to discover constantly the love and grace of Jesus Christ •Build up one another in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, encouraging everyone to discern and use their gifts •Send out empowered disciples to our community and the world to share God’s love in word and deed to relieve suffering in Christ’s Name

Oconee Presbyterian began as a New Church Development in 1999. Rev. Pam Driesell and missionary members from area Presbyterian churches began worshiping in homes, a storefront, a clubhouse, and a school. In 2001 with 100+ members, we purchased 15 acres and worshipped al fresco while building a multi-use 15K sq. ft. building dedicated in 2004. The church grew under Rev. Pam’s leadership through 2010, when she was called away to serve as pastor of a large congregation in Atlanta. In 2012, we welcomed Rev. Joel Tolbert and his family, and are excited to continue God’s mission beside him.
