Buckhead Church is a nondenominational Christian church campus of North Point Community Church located in the Buckhead district of Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Andy Stanley is the senior pastor.

History

Buckhead Church was founded on April 29, 2001 as a biweekly meeting called Buckhead Fellowship. Stanley advised the founders and was the first guest speaker. The church officially became affiliated with North Point Ministries in August 2001.

The church originally met in the building of Buckhead Baptist Church on Sunday evenings. In 2002, the church moved to the Doubletree Hotel in Buckhead. On Easter 2003, the church moved to a building in Sandy Springs formerly occupied by a Harris Teeter grocery store.

From the fall of 2006 through the spring of 2007, Buckhead Church opened a second temporary campus in a movie theater at Atlantic Station. This was known as the "Midtown Gathering."

The church held its first services at its current location at Tower Place on May 6, 2007. The 188,000-square-foot (17,500 m2) building houses an auditorium that holds 3,000 seats.[1][2]
