Hello and welcome to the web presence of
Hill Chapel Baptist Church of Athens,
Georgia. Here at the “Chapel”, we are
committed to the excellence of God through

praise, worship, study, and the Internet. We
are also committed to serving the people of
the Athens area in a variety of ways. Hill
Chapel is a holistic ministry—a ministry of

presence, practice, and participation. It is the
vision of this pastor, that Hill Chapel will continue to extend outreach to those who need it, advocate for those who cannot and will not, and provide opportunities for enrichment and, through our Family Youth Institute Hill Chapel provide

job training, drug counseling, best practices in parenting as well as economic, housing and health seminars.

Inside the “Chapel,” you will find that this is a loving and caring church community. We believe that each person is uniquely gifted to serve God in a particular way. To be sure,

then, no two persons are gifted identically so, every person has an opportunity to impact the service of the Lord. That is why as Pastor, I strive to involve every person within the Ministry because every person who joins the Kingdom of God is called to “do the work of an evangelist.” This is why we encourage and foster training activities, Sunday School and Wednesday services – to meet the needs of preparation for our people.

Friend, we invite you to come out to the “Chapel” and experience the tremendous movement of God here. You can worship at any other church or with any other people

but, please know this, there is only One True and Living God. At Hill Chapel we worship and serve only the True and Living God.

God Bless You, Beloved

Pastor Michael B. Gerald
