  • Benji Ladd - executive Pastor

    FAVORITE PERSON IN THE BIBLE: Moses, as I’ve always been able to identify with his feeling of inadequacy. ON MY iPOD: Eric Church, Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams, Jr. and Garth. None of that new stuff trying to pass off as country. FAVORITE SUPER HERO: Jesus. PERFECT DAY: Hanging out with the family in the morning, and then hunting with them in the evening. GREENVILLE'S GREAT because it has all the thrills of a big city, without the traffic of Atlanta. Email Benji. 

  • Angela Carter - Adult Education & Women's Ministries

    FAVORITE DISNEY PRINCESS: Cinderella, because she never forgot who she was. She lived with dignity, humility and kindness. ON MY iPOD: Real crime podcasts, and a whole lot of 80s & 90s music.  I LOVE BRUSHY CREEK because of the people. They are family. MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW I paddle-board and decorate cakes (just not at the same time). APPS: iMessage, Church Life, BringFido (Roxy's my travel companion).  I REGRET not investing in a good curling iron in high school. I’ve got some rough looking photos from the mid-90s.

    FAVORITE PERSON IN THE BIBLE: Apostle Paul. He was the greatest missionary who ever lived, and was keenly aware of his weaknesses, and always appreciated and acknowledged God's grace.  MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW my parents legally changed my name from Jeremy to Jeremiah when I was 2,  because my grandmother believed God had a special calling for my life.  IN MY SPARE TIME I restore Fiat Spiders.  BEST CONCERT: B.B.
