The first Silverleaf Baptist Church’s congregation had its Genesis in September of 1935. The church’s name originated out of the Silver Leaf Monthly Club. The first pastor of this local assembly was its founder, Reverend J. W. Yancey, along with his wife Mother Jannie Yancey.
In the mid-fifties, the church relocated to this present site from its original location on Piedmont Street near downtown Atlanta.
In February 1982, the current pastor, Bobby L. Giddens and wife Jacqueline, along with their two daughters, Cicely and LeeAnne were called to shepherd this local assembly.
