Who We Are

We want you to share in our exciting fellowship - a church that is open, friendly, and most of all centered on Jesus Christ. Our beliefs are from the Holy Bible, the inspired, authoritative record of God's plan and purpose for us. We understand these beliefs more fully as we study the life and teaching of Jesus Christ.

Our Services

What are services like?
At Johnson Ferry, we value worship. Through the experience of corporate worship believers are encouraged as we participate in praising God through music and prayer. Christ-centered, Bible-based preaching teaches and challenges worshipers to live as committed followers of Jesus Christ. Weekly corporate worship is enhanced by individual commitment to private worship, and we challenge JFBC members to have a daily time of Bible study and prayer. It is the goal of this ministry to provide worship opportunities that are the highlight of the week for our members and guests.

What is the community like?
Our church family is comprised of all ages and our ministries seek to connect with people in all walks of life. Bible study groups are offered Sunday mornings and throughout the week for women, men, couples, and singles. Sunday Bible Study is available for preschool, children, and students. We offer ministries for those with special needs, families looking to foster or adopt, individuals in career transition, and people in need of counseling. Other opportunities for involvement include our sports teams, fitness classes, music programs, and service projects both local and overseas. Weekly activities and special events are available for men, women, children, students, and families. Our campus amenities are open to the community, including a café, bookstore, library, indoor track, gym, indoor/outdoor playgrounds, prayer room and more. The Sanctuary and Chapel may be reserved for weddings. Free WiFi is available throughout the campus.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Contact our staff anytime for questions about faith and your spiritual journey. On Sunday mornings, please plan to visit one of our Connection Centers conveniently located near the Sanctuary and Activities Center. We look forward to meeting you in person and answering your questions.

Bryant Wright

A successful businessman before answering God’s call to ministry, Bryant Wright is a respected Bible teacher, pastor, husband, father, and community leader. He is a straightforward communicator who uniquely connects God's unchanging truth with a diverse culture through compelling and creative teaching. In all services, the message from the pulpit is presented in a teaching style. Always centered on key passages of Scripture, his sermons are practical and seek to explain how Scripture can be applied to everyday life. Bryant doesn’t shy away from controversial issues. If the Bible deals with them, he will seek to deal with them, too. Bryant was called by Johnson Ferry to become the first pastor when it was a mission of First Baptist Church in Marietta, GA, with a membership of about twenty families meeting in an empty doctor’s office. Johnson Ferry now has over 8,500 members and 7 Sunday morning worship services with an average worship attendance of about 4,000. The church is unique in offering traditional and modern worship in all 3 hours of worship. Bryant alternates preaching live in the Sanctuary and Activities Center, with his messages being broadcast into the opposite venue via video. His messages are also available via live streaming at JohnsonFerry.org. Bryant is the founder and chairman of Right From the Heart Ministries. Using secular radio, television, print media and the internet, he provides challenging, inspirational and insightful messages to encourage people in this hard-charging world in which we live. He has authored five books, One Minute of Your Time, Another Minute of Your Time, One Minute of Your Day, Seeds of Turmoil (biblical origins of the Middle East conflict), and Right from the Heart, a book of daily devotionals. His most recent book on end times, The Stage Is Set, was released by Baker Books in January 2017. You can learn more about Bryant's resources, listen or view his messages online, and download podcasts at rightfromtheheart.org. Bryant graduated from University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in English in 1974 and received a Master of Divinity in 1980 from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. In 2007, he was granted an Honorary Doctorate from SEFOVAN seminary in Madrid, Spain, and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the University of South Carolina in 2011. A native of Atlanta, GA, Bryant and his wife, Anne, reside in Marietta, GA (suburban Atlanta). They have three sons, three daughters-in-law, and five grandchildren.
