The Parish team is led by Eddie and Danielle Kirkland. After meeting in the sixth grade in Jacksonville, Florida, Eddie and Danielle eventually reconnected in Atlanta and have been together ever since. They are the parents of three beautiful children, Jude, Emmeline and Hollis.
Eddie most recently served for five years on staff at North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia. He had the privilege of pastoring a large team of musicians and worship leaders as well as helping to plan and coordinate Sunday services. Eddie has also served on the staff of Passion Conferences and has worked nationally as a worship leader and recording artist. Forever a nerd at heart, he is currently pursuing a Master’s degree from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California.
Over the past ten years, Danielle has served in a variety of ministry and business roles ranging from the coordinator of conferences such as Catalyst and Q, to the Director of Operations for a multi-million dollar manufacturing company. She is also an avid writer, and has helped contribute to several book and curriculum projects.
In addition to Eddie and Danielle, The Parish Launch Team has been meeting regularly for prayer, worship and planning for several months. The team consists of twenty people representing twelve incredible families that are dedicated to seeing the vision of this new church change the metro Atlanta area.
