New Work Foundation Executive Committee Members

President, Dr. Eric Suddith

I am a retired executive with 23 plus years of experience managing high technology with domestic and international experience. I served in several key executive positions; these include Vice President of Operations and Network Services, Cloud Data Center Services Vice President, and Human Resource Vice President. Today, I am a former Corporate Executive and a church planting Pastor in the Atlanta area. We planted Emmanuel Community Church in a school with 13 people 18 years ago. God, through his sovereignty, sent 2,000 volunteers to assist us in building our campus so that today, 1,300 now worship our Savior here weekly. Our community food pantry provides 8,000 pounds of heartwarming nourishment each month to the community. We are also investing in our youth through Emmanuel’s Kids Academy and an after-school program that serves 200 kids. Lastly, I’m humbled to serve as President & CEO of Stone Mountain Baptist Association New Work Foundation. Eric has a B.S. in Business, an MBA, and a Doctorate in Ministry.

I have been married for 40 years to my high school sweetheart Melany, and we have three wonderful children and three awesome grandsons.
