Start In San Diego

Cyclical San Diego is excited to host Start In San Diego in partnership with the Presbytery of San Diego. At Start In San Diego, we will gather Discerners (people discerning God’s call to start a new church), Starters (leaders and pastors who’ve already begun to gather new worshiping communities), and established church leaders in friendship and conversation about starting new churches in our beautiful, diverse city.


Rev. Aisha Brooks-Lytle is Executive Presbyter of the Greater Atlanta Presbytery, which has 92 churches and over 400 clergy, where she works to connect, equip, and empower congregations and people to carry out their missions. In the last 10 years, Greater Atlanta Presbytery has helped launch over 40 new worshiping communities.

“Pastor Eesh,” as Rev. Brooks-Lytle is affectionately nicknamed, is a multitalented preacher and vocalist, as well as being a loving mother and sought-after guest speaker.
