The Mylon Hayes Family announce the addition of a Friday morning session to their annual
event, Celebration In The Foothills. Celebration In The Foothills is the family group's home
event, hosted at Open Door Baptist Church in Hickory, North Carolina August 15 – 16, 2024 and
features two nights of Gospel music. This additional service will feature a morning with the
Mylon Hayes Family and guest speaker, Dr. Anthony George.
Dr. Anthony George is the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Atlanta, Georgia. Having
served as the church’s associate pastor since 2012, he assumed the lead role at the historic
church in 2020 upon the retirement of the church’s pastor of over fifty years, the late Dr. Charles
Stanley. Before coming to First Baptist Atlanta, George was the senior pastor of Aloma Church
in Winter Park, Florida, a suburb of Orlando, for fifteen years.
Anthony George is passionate about teaching the Bible and applying it to daily life. He is
especially devoted to the study of Bible prophecy and the signs of prophetic fulfillment in today’s
world. He is a graduate of Criswell College in Dallas, Texas, and earned his master’s and
doctoral degrees from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North
