    FOUNDING AND lead pastor

    McKay and his family (wife of twenty-seven years, Kristy, three children, now 23, 21, and 15, and two dogs) moved to Dahlonega in July of 2009 to begin a church planting journey that is now Creekstone Church. His primary ministry includes preaching on Sundays, teaching midweek courses, leading Creekstone Campus Fellowship, the Church Staff and Elder Team, and equipping our Ministry Team Leaders and K-Group Facilitators.  

    In addition to his pastoral role with Creekstone, McKay serves on the faculty of Metro Atlanta Seminary, leads the Timothy Fellowship, a mentoring ministry for younger pastors, and writes for Mustard Seed Publications, where he is the author of The Grade Exchange: An Introduction to the Gospel, The Jesus Script: Engaging Undeserving Sinners with Unexpected Kindness, Seven Strands of Grace: Untangling the Riches of the Gospel, Baptism: What Every Christian Needs to Know, and The Bronze Serpent: A Collection of Scripture Based, Cross-Centered Prayers.


    A "high C," INTJ, Enneagram 5w4, he enjoys dating his wife, spending time with his children, watching history documentaries and college football, as well as exploring the mountains of north Georgia. McKay writes at medium.com/@mckaycaston and mustardseedpubs.com.
