I am excited to introduce Caleb Avery as our new Activities and Youth Ministry Center (AYMC) Director, filling the position previously held by Mittie Taylor. Caleb is the founder of 3 The Hard Way (3THW), an excellent basketball academy that has made a positive impact on the travel sports landscape here in Greenville and is well known all over the region, and throughout the state in general, for its competitive youth teams and well run tournaments. However, many of you have gotten to know Caleb as the AYMC’s Evening and Weekend Supervisor, a part-time position he has held for several years, in addition to running 3THW. Caleb will officially begin as AYMC Director on March 1, transitioning from the position of interim director, which he graciously assumed after Mittie’s retirement in December of 2020.
On behalf of the search committee, I invite you to warmly and enthusiastically join us in welcoming Caleb onto the church’s staff and into this important role. We are confident he will flourish as he takes on the leadership and responsibility of helping First Baptist Greenville live into the AYMC’s mission to “strengthen the connection between the congregation of First Baptist Church and the Greenville community and to provide an inexpensive and inviting place to be healthy, to belong, and to serve.”
