Greater Empowerment Movement, also known as The GEM Church, delivers a message of the HOPE of Jesus Christ through love to the inner city and beyond. GEM Church founder Pastor Deedria Chauntee says “Our Mission is simple; GEM welcomes everyone to experience Worship + Word + Workshops to =Ensure Wealth Spiritually, Financially and Naturally” across the city and beyond.
Since September 1, 2019, the GEM Church has operated in downtown Atlanta providing resources such as resources and training in the areas of economic development, entrepreneurship, and finance! Events such as the EVOLVE Summit and the E3 Men’s Summit began dialogues that fostered unification and growth that transcended across racial, gender, and sexual orientation divides. The GEM Church is also home to the dynamic gospel group, Genesis Of Praise, under the direction of Felita Ja'Cole and Minister Melvin Pitts, and Minister of Music Lanell Gray.
Today the GEM Church delivers the gospel of Jesus to the entire Atlanta metropolitan area by expanding into its 2nd location located on Panola Road in Lithonia, GA.
