I am Steve Whipple lead pastor of The Church @ the Ridge in Southern Paulding County in Northwest metro Atlanta, GA. I am a dad of 8 and grandfather of five and the husband of the most amazing woman in the world! I am blessed beyond imagination. This blog is about my journey as a church planter and pastor as well as some random ramblings on various topics from church leadership, to family, to God’s Word and His grace. While there are things related to The Church @ The Ridge and it’s ministry posted here, this is my personal blog and the things expressed here do not necessarily reflect official views of CATR.
