I carry many titles – Disciple, Daddy, Pastor, Coach, Friend...

My name is Dorsia Atkinson and I am the pastor of LifeSpring Church in Statesboro, GA. I am a follower of Jesus and will talk to anyone about just about anything. Now, I'm not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I do walk in God's forgiveness. I have a strong desire to make a difference in this world that causes a ripple effect of Jesus' love.

I grew up in Landis, North Carolina and have served in ministry for over 20 years, starting off in Children & Youth ministry. I served as lay pastor of Centenary United Methodist Church, associate pastor of McRae United Methodist Church and pastor of Warwick United Methodist Church. I'm a graduate of North Carolina State University and received a Masters of Divinity in 2008 from Asbury Theological Seminary.

My, Jodi, and I have been married since 1982 and have three incredible kids – Chris, Brian and Danielle.
