Meet the Team

It tends to be a saying around this office: Doing God’s work should be the most fun we have.
At Baptist Foundation of South Carolina we can truly say it is.

Our number one priority is working hard to serve our Lord through serving churches, ministries, and individuals. That involves producing accurate reporting, assessing investments through a Biblical lens, or meeting with churches and individuals about generosity. However, we also work together through brainstorming sessions, praying together, occasionally playing pranks on each other, or having discussions over our most recent staff book reading. Each member of the Foundation team possesses our core values: disciple’s heart, warrior spirit, and genuinely fun. We are anchored in being Biblically focused, simply smart, and caring for the client. We are excited to get to connect with you!
