The initial idea to establish Mekane Hiwot Abune Gebre Menfes Kidus EOTC (MH AGMK EOTC) started in early 2009. With the Grace of God, the church was consecrated by Abune Abraham and Abune Markos, and started giving service on January 23 2010.

Our first location was at 4540 Memorial Drive in a small rented suite of about 1200 square feet. We acquired our own building and moved to the current location in July 2014.


Atlanta Mekane Hiwot Abune Gebre Menfes Kidus (MH AGMK EOTC) also known as Atlanta Abo is a parish under the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church Archdiocese of Washington DC and its surroundings.

The Church is governed by a Parish Council whose objective is to care for the Church, to expand and enrich her services, encourage parishioners to hold firm to the faith and morals of the Christian life as well as to properly administer the finance and property of the church. Parish Council members are elected from Parishioners in good standing and have two year terms.


Atlanta Abo is a parish under the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church; hence our doctrine and cannons are the same as the ecclesiastical Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church of Ethiopia.
