About My Family

Christian and his bride, Kimmie, have been married almost 10 years now. Together they have three kids: Charlieanne (7), Madeline (5) and Brady (22 months). Christian and Kimmie love to try new Atlanta restaurants, hang out in the city with family and friends and, most of all, host neighbors and church family in their home. When people give him the chance, Christian likes most to roll out his Big Green Egg grill with friends and pretend he's a grill master.

Christian and Kimmie both came to faith in Christ through the ministry partnership of Eagle's Landing First Baptist Church and Eagle's Landing Christian Academy. Christian completed a Master of Divinity from Southeastern Seminary and was trained at Open Door Church in Raleigh, N.C. There the Whites developed a passionate love for the local church and the mission of God.

About My Church Plant

During their training at Open Door and Southeastern Seminary, Christian and Kimmie developed a strong passion for the city of Atlanta. After much prayer, Christian and Kimmie moved their family with three other families to the city to plant Parkside Church. Parkside was launched in September 2018 with an incredible group of passionate Jesus followers.

East Side Atlanta has a high concentration of highly-affluent young professionals and young families. The area around the church represents a large population of cultural and corporate influencers. Therefore, Parkside was planted with a vision of global impact through intentional cultural engagement and faithful disciple-making.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity.

We invite you to join us in praying for gospel revival in our city. Additionally, our church is made up of a very young congregation and is planted in a diverse area. We are praying that God would raise up or send multi-generational and multi-ethnic leadership to serve alongside Christian in shepherding the congregation. Lastly, our vision is big and our area is expensive. Please pray that God would raise up the right people and the right churches to partner with us by praying, giving and going with us!


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
