The Intersect Project

The Intersect Project


Intersect makes serving in the community simple for attendees of Buckhead Church. We aim to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ through serving others. To serve, we move beyond our building into the city to care for our neighbors in need. Specifically, we introduce people to service opportunities through our nonprofit partnerships.



Anyone! We’d love to help you take a first step toward serving the City of Atlanta, whether you’re serving with your small group, your family, or individually.

  • Community Groups: We love when our Community Groups serve together! Please visit our Serve Together page for more information about how your group can serve in our city.

Select the nonprofits for which you’d like to receive information. We will not share your information, and we will be considerate in our frequency of contact.



To connect people to service opportunities, Buckhead Church has formed ongoing relationships with nonprofits and civic entities around our city. Our partner organizations focus on the homeless or near-homeless and at-risk children in Atlanta. Let us introduce you to them:
