Originated in 2016, All Nations Worship Assembly - Atlanta (ANWA ATL) is the first church plant of the All Nations Collective founded by Dr. Matthew Stevenson III. Led by Pastor LaBryant Friend alongside his wife, Phineka Friend, the church started as a monthly gathering titled Monday Night Madness that garnered massive attention around the city and certainly contributed to the successful official launch of the ministry.
ANWA ATL exists to impact culture through social transformation, community building, and fostering a worship culture that is life-altering. We believe that we will achieve this by remaining committed to our culture codes: Find Family, Discover Purpose, Change the World.
Pastors LaBryant and Phineka Friend are the Lead Pastors of All Nations Worship Assembly-Atlanta. Together they share a passion to present a view of ministry and family-life that is healthy and honors God's idea of what those things should look like. Their foremost desire is to point people to the one thing that changes everything: life with Jesus. Their union was sealed in 2008 and they are the proud parents of four remarkable daughters.
