Jay Sanders

Senior Pastor

I grew up in a great home with a godly mother who got us involved in a biblical church in south metro Atlanta. I was saved and baptized in that church as a young boy and would later begin to feel the desire to serve Jesus through some form of church ministry there as well. I think that being a part of such a good church as a kid gave me a passion to serve Christ by serving his church.

I was married to my wife Marsha in August of 2003 and we have two testosterone fueled little boys that love to laugh and wrestle. My wife is my best friend and I am constantly amazed at how well she represents Jesus as a wife and a mother. She also doesn't get any of my jokes.

I graduated from Toccoa Falls College with a B.S. in TV Broadcasting in 1997 and from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with an M.Div. in 2009. I have been the pastor of Towaliga Baptist Church since October of 2008 and I love it. This is my first time serving as a pastor so I have a lot to learn. I am so thankful for the gracious and encouraging people here at Towaliga.

In my free time I like to spend time with family, run, read, watch the Georgia Bulldogs, Atlanta Falcons and the UFC.
