Rev. Susannah Davis grew up in Warrenton, Georgia instilled with a love of church, family and community. She attended Emory & Henry College in Emory, Virginia, and from there, moved to Atlanta, GA to attend Candler School of Theology at Emory University.

Upon graduation from Candler, she was ordained in the United Methodist Church and served churches and agencies in the North Georgia Conference for the following 11 years before receiving a call to start a new church with the United Church of Christ in 2006. 

In 2007, Susannah began gathering folks in Kirkwood and neighboring communities at Gathering Grounds Coffee shop, and from those intentional times of Bible study, service, community building, worship and lots of coffee, Kirkwood UCC began to become. 

Susannah continues to lead Kirkwood UCC in worship, service and creative ways to love the community.  She promotes meaningful worship that moves people toward a deeper relationship with God and others.  After 5 different locations, Kirkwood UCC has recently moved into a new sanctuary and a permanent home for their life together and community ministry. 

Susannah serves as a Mental Health First Aid trainer, and a teacher in the contextual education program at Candler School of Theology.  Susannah also serves on the Candler Alumni Board, the Emory & Henry Alumni Board and the Church Building and Loan Fund Board of the United Church of Christ.  Susannah has recently joined the APS Go Team for Toomer Elementary and is grateful to be a part of the Kirkwood Business Owners Association. 

Susannah, her partner Susan and their dog Louise live in Kirkwood and (most of the time) are ridiculously happy and grateful!

If you're sitting on the porch visiting with her, she has a hard time simply enjoying the moment, because she is looking around at all of the plants on the porch - she's looking at the ends of those little shoots to see if she can pick them off and make room for new growth. I think it's in her DNA.
