For decades Zion Hill Baptist Church met the spiritual needs of thousands of Cascade area residents from its historic Lynhurst campus.
On May 6, the “Old Zion Hill” facility reopened as New Zion Baptist Church of Atlanta. “The New Zion Baptist Church of Atlanta counts it all joy for the divine privilege and opportunity of continuing this ministry of excellence,” Paul Hollman, senior pastor of the reconstituted congregation.
“This campus serves as a launching pad for a real and relevant ministry – one that again brings hope, help and healing to the community,” Hollman said.
Hollman comes to the new ministry from Dothan Ala., where he serves as senior pastor at Greater Beulah Baptist Church. He will continue his pastorate in Dothan while beginning this new ministry in Atlanta.
A graduate of Morehouse College in Atlanta, with a bachelor of arts degree in religion, Hollman received theological training from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C. He built Mt. Moriah Baptist Church in Birmingham whose membership stands at more than 1,500.
Hollman also served as the first director of youth services in Birmingham – initiating programs addressing teen pregnancy, education and literacy, youth gang violence, drug and alcohol abuse and unemployment problems. He also has a television ministry that airs on three networks.
The May 6 program included messages from Dr. Aaron Parker, pastor of Zion Hill Baptist Church which had its historic roots at the Lynhurst Drive location; Gregory Clarke, pastor of Birmingham’s New Hope Baptist Church; and Jermaine Smith of Pleasant View Baptist Church.
