Part of the vision God has given us is to multiply our Gospel influence by planting independent, self-sustaining churches.  Planning for our first, in Indian Land, South Carolina, is well underway.

Hear from our Church Plant Lead Pastor


After an extensive search process and much prayer, in October 2023, we announced that Gentry Eddings will be the Lead Pastor of our first church plant!  He is an incredibly gifted and experienced leader who is strongly aligned with Southbrook's beliefs, values, and culture. 

Gentry holds an M.A. in Christian Thought and will shortly earn an M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He has served in various staff roles at Forest Hill Church over the past 14 years, most recently as Campus Pastor at their Ballantyne location.

Get Involved

If you’re interested in being part of the plant, would like more information, or have questions, let us know here, and one of our team will contact you.

Detailed Plans

We shared more detailed plans for the plant at a gathering in August 2023:
