In 2014 upon agreement of the Diocesan Bishops of South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and approval from the Pentecostal Churches of the Apostolic Faith International, assistant Presiding Bishop Lambert W. Gates, Sr. met with Atlantic States Council Bishops and membership  to facilitate an appointed governing board to organize the dissolution of the Atlantic States Council and transition into three individual state councils.

Historically,  a part of the Atlantic States Council, the PCAF Georgia Diocesan Bishop Barry S. Mitchell and PCAF churches in the state of Georgia agreed to become the Georgia Regional Conference (GRC).   Under the 17th Episcopal District of the PCAF the new council; the Georgia Regional Conference, made its debut on February 12, 2015 at The Rose Garden Event Center in Lithonia, hosted by Jurisdictional Bishop elect Ivan Gordon and First Assembly Apostolic Church. 

Sessions are held three times a year, in February, May, and September with the May session designated as the Annual Session. The Georgia Regional Conference tri-annual meetings are designed to promote unity, leadership training, church growth, and fellowship. In May of 2016, the Georgia Regional Conference will held its first election of officers.
