our team

Our church is shepherded by a group of elders elected by our church. Our elders not only guide our congregation, but also provide direction to our pastors, support staff, volunteers, and administrative team. Get to know more about our team members here.

Justin DuBose

Lead Pastor

Pastor Justin came to ABC in July 2019.  He has been married to Alanna since 2005 and together they have five kids.

Justin has been in the ministry since 2005 and has also pastored churches in Georgia and North Carolina.  He is a military graduate of the University of North Georgia and also serves as a Chaplain in the United States Army Reserves and an Adjunct Professor at Abilene Christian University & Toccoa Falls College.  He earned a Masters of Divinity from Luther Rice Seminary and a Ph.D. from Northcentral University.

Originally from Texas, Justin is a life-long Dallas Cowboys fan and, for that, he is used to ridicule and mockery.
