Brian Smith, Elder
I love the Lord, I love my family, I love my church family.
The Lord saw fit to save me as a child in south Florida. I moved to Greenville for college, and married my dear wife Becky after my junior year. When I graduated from college I had a job in town, so Greenville has become our home.
The Lord brought my wife and I to GBC over twenty years ago, and GBC is our church family. We’re delighted that our three children have grown up in the church. We’re blessed to be a part of this church body.
