Our Past and Present
Timothy Lutheran in Woodstock recognized a need for a Lutheran Church in the Jasper/Ellijay area and in early 2010 began contacting people in our area. By October 24, 2010 we held our first service and we have been meeting every Sunday since.
On December 4, 2016 King of Kings became a full member of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS), celebrating that event with a Chartering Service. Reverend Greg Walton, President of the FL/GA District of the LCMS, officiated. Reaching this major milestone in six years since we first met to worship is a testament to the greatness of our God. We have grown steadily from 14 members to over 75 and are excited to be in a larger facility to accommodate our growth.
During the past we have been blessed with and led by a wonderful cadre of retired and interim pastors of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Recently Rev. Ernie Knoche and Rev. David Sieg retired for the second time when we installed our first full time pastor on August 1, 2020.
With the continued help and guidance of the Holy Spirit, we hope to continue growing in the Spirit and in size in the North Georgia Mountains!

Pastor Jefrey Jensen
On August 1, The Reverend Jefrey Jensen was formally installed as our new Pastor at King of Kings. He along with his wife Paige and their two sons have officially joined our family.
Reverend Jensen has been an ordained pastor for about twenty five years. Before he accepted the call to King of Kings, he served various churches in the New England region.
Pastor Jensen is passionate about seeking both Christians and non-Christians with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, so that Christians can live out their faith lives more fully, and non-Christians may come to know the love of Christ in His Gospel.
Confident of our new identity in Jesus Christ, we are compelled by His love to share the Gospel and serve our community in Jesus’ Name.
