"We awaken hearts to dream again.  We stir souls with a tangible expression of hope. We are a people united; arms locked for a future known in many hearts but seen with few eyes. We amplify hope for the broken and scale joy for the hurting. We are The Alternative."

In January of 2012, a group of college students decided to take a leap, dared to be different, and listened to the call that God had placed in their hearts. They didn't want to start another church or just be another non-profit, but they wanted to let a generation know that there is more. There is more to this life than what this world has to offer—there is an Alternative way of living. These young men and women are paving the way for a generation that they love and are fighting for by igniting the local church with a passion for Christ through love, worship and discipleship, all of which are based on biblical truths. The Alternative exists to unite communities and amplify hope.  Whether you've heard about us on the radio, had friends come worship with us, or maybe you just came across our site, there's a reason for it and we are glad you are here! Now is the time to jump on board, live the Alternative life, and get involved. 

The Alternative is about thinking differently.  Doing differently.  Taking less traveled roads.  Creating your own path.  Taking paths of great resistance.  And actually making a difference in the lives around us … and the world at large. We are more than a brand or a movement, we are not just about events and apparel. We are not a Sunday church or a music group that does concerts, we are people.  People who are desperate for God to move in our schools, workplaces and families. People with dreams that require the power and backing of community. We believe in unity but not at the sake of watering down truth. We live, exist and dream for the name of Jesus. The is who we are.


"The Alternative Ministries is just what it sounds like – a Christian ministry but with lots of youthful enthusiasm and energy. When young people from Coweta County and the nearby area get together for monthly worship gatherings put together by the Alternative Ministries, it doesn’t look much like the traditional image of church. There is appealing music, lights, sounds – and lots of young people from different backgrounds."
