Meet our Pastor

ALEX PERAKIS is a Richmond County native and will quickly tell you that he did not grow up in church and knew nothing about church culture before he became a Christian as a "young" adult.  From there He spent many years as a business man and then as a bi-vocational pastor in Richmond County. He was led to begin Summit Church in 2016 as a place where people would feel welcome to grow a relationship with God and His Son, Jesus Christ.  He continues to be a successful entrepreneur as the founder of ConCretan Flooring Company.
