The first JfL class was launched in Atlanta in 2008. Over the next 7 years, more and more churches and ministries discovered the power of connecting to their communities through the JfL platform.

In the summer of 2015, the next step taken as the Greater Atlanta JfL City Network was launched and a concerted effort was made to connect the church and business community through the JfL platform. At the time, there were 8 churches actively involved. Today there are 20+ churches/ministries, various businesses, and dozens of volunteers working together in a vibrant, life-giving network.
