Generation of Hope Church Vision


Our Vision is to bring healing and encouragement through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to empower those that are lost, broken and rejected and to transform them into Christian Disciples. 

In January of 2012, Pastor Dwight Buckner Jr. started a local Tuesday night Bible study inside of his barber shop. With a heart to help the local Decatur, GA Community, each week Pastor Dwight would teach practical Christian lessons and the significance of applying God’s word to their lives.

In addition, Pastor Dwight would give out free meals to anyone who was in need. After holding a local Bible study for over a year inside of his shop, Pastor Dwight heard the Lord telling him to preach “Hope” to a lost generation.
