Magnolia House and Garden is located in historic Jonesboro, Georgia, where the old South mingles with the 21st Century cosmopolitan of Atlanta. The Magnolia House and Garden offers a traditional setting in a renovated space infused with state-of-the-art equipment, forward-thinking professionals, and innovative presentations. Our house and garden lend itself to a relaxed feeling, with open spaces filled with natural light.
The Magnolia House and Garden serves as a gateway to a normal life for women who have strayed from their families, their communities, and their God. Here the women learn new skills, earn money for their eventual return to society, and build a new life on the secure foundation of Biblical principles. They dedicate themselves to serving your needs no matter what the occasion.
Magnolia House and Garden is an alcohol and smoke free event center. In addition, we are an all-inclusive event center thus no outside food and/or catering is permitted.
The Magnolia House and Garden was crafted from a residence that had fallen on hard times. After nearly a year of renovations - which included the installation of a state-of-the-art kitchen, completely new flooring, doors, windows, and bathrooms – the event center was not completely ready. The inside was almost totally new but the outside needed work, lots of work.
The Magnolia House would not be the same without its Garden. This small yet stately gardens are populated with the brilliant colors of nature, including, of course, an abundance of Magnolia trees. Your guests will mingle with delicate Indigos, stroll past rows of Azaleas, be enchanted by beds of Roses, and be encircled with all the captivating fragrances of the myriad flowers.
Our garden can accommodate your party of up to 250 guests. The Magnolia House and Garden offers a variety of outdoor furniture, including handcrafted wooden pews, acrylic or wood chairs. Choose from our selection of candelabras and arches to accent any event.
The meticulously restored Red Barn once held chickens and farm equipment. Now it boasts a sound stage that is directly connected to our covered pavilion. The covered pavilion, which can accommodate up to 48 guests, can be the perfect spot for small, relaxed parties or large outdoor school or church events. Bring your family here for a reunion that will go down in family history.

Looking for the perfect place for an intimate sized gathering? Located next door to our lovely property is the historic Greenhouse of Jonesboro, a ministry affiliate of A Better Way Ministries. An intimate event venue it can host a number of small events such as: afternoon tea, luncheons, meetings, showers and so much more.
Our program is Christ centered and Biblically based. Located in Peachtree City, Georgia, for a period of 18 months, men who enter A Better Way will live, work and study alongside others; they will be properly equipped to seek Jesus Christ for the answers they so desperately need. A Better Way Ministries is not simply a rehab facility, we are a discipleship program. We are passionate about guiding our students to become fully transformed men of God, leaving destructive life patterns behind.
Many of the men in our program came to us with very little knowledge of the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are absolutely committed to the daily spiritual growth of our students through personal Bible devotions, corporate worship and prayer, church services and specialized classes and study materials. We feel all of these commitments are necessary to provide the depth and knowledge that is crucial for authentic life change.
An 18 month discipleship program such as ours may seem daunting at first. A sudden lifestyle change from selfishness to structure can be very difficult; but our standards are non-negotiable. Communication with family and friends will be cut off for a period of several months. Our days start early at 4:45am. All types of nicotine products are strictly prohibited. Guidelines regarding hygiene, dress attire, organization, speech, attitude and personal responsibility – all individually enforced. The bar is set high at A Better Way Ministries, but if a man is willing to go the distance to experience true life change; we will most definitely go the distance for him.
