The Peachtree Pentz Speaker Series was established and funded in honor of Rev. Dr. Vic Pentz, who served as Senior Pastor at Peachtree from 2000–2016. The program brings leading speakers and Christian apologists to Peachtree Church to challenge, inform, and inspire Christians of Atlanta to live for Christ in the complexity of today’s culture.
