About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family.

Who we are

Here's the deal, UGCLife is a house of healing, hope, and help. We care about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. UGCLife is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.

Where we come from

UGCLife was born in 2011 by Pastor Todd out of a rich history from Union Grove. Back then, Pastor Todd and a multitude of families imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender.

Where we're headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, UGCLife is committed to being a house of healing, hope, and help where individuals can know God, find freedom, discover their purpose, and make a difference.

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at UGCLife. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you'll always be accepted as part of the UGCLife family.

Senior Pastor

Todd Garner is the senior pastor of UGCLife. Since he began in 2011, the church has grown to two campuses and multiple services. We have dedicated ourselves to be a life-giving culture that brings healing, hope, and help to our communities. 


Pastor Todd has a deep desire to see lives changed through our Sunday services and relationships built through small groups. Pastor Todd founded the H3 Center to be a place where the disenfranchised children in our community can find help for their needs and learn more about Jesus. 


Todd and his wife Shana have three children and live in Tifton, Georgia. He enjoys spending time with family, traveling, and football.
