One month after its golden birthday, Christian City continues to receive praise for its long-term service ministering to the needs of children and senior adults. Recognitions over the past weeks include proclamations from both the Fayette and Fulton County Commissions, and a Community Catalyst Award from the 13th Annual South Metro Development Outlook. At the State Capitol, Christian City garnered yet another notable achievement from The House of Representatives. State Representative, Mr. Virgil Fludd, saluted Bob Crutchfield, Christian City President/CEO for his 22 years of leading the life-changing ministries.
Bob Crutchfield remarked, “With God’s help and the help of the community, we’ve been able to do the work that we have been called to do. We look forward to another 50 years of being a community of faith serving those in need.” Mr. Crutchfield was also presented with the CornerStone Award from the South Fulton Chamber of Commerce for his commendable years of service. In 2014, the U.S. World News and Report boosted Christian City with a five-star rating as being among the ‘Best Nursing Homes’ in the nation.
