Lead Minister Search Updates

Lead Minister Search Team

On Sunday, April 11, Collin Packer announced that he would be stepping down as Lead Minister at Greenville Oaks after serving in that position for the past seven years. Collin is making this change to pursue the calling God has placed on his heart to advocate for greater racial and social justice and equity. While we are incredibly sad to see Collin leave, we are excited to see what God will do through Collin and this passion.

The Greenville Oaks elders have created a Lead Minister Search Team to help us identify our next Lead Minister. Team members include Bryan Brokaw (Team Lead), Acacia Browne, Troie Burch, Tommy Doan, Doug Key, Lois Lindsey, Paula Macon, Keith Maloney, Mark Mimms, Wes Rasbury, and Tim Woodbridge.

You are invited to contact the Search Team with questions or with other information. Please join us for a season of prayer, not only for the Packer family, but also for this team and the candidate (and their family) whom God has already selected to serve alongside us at Greenville Oaks.

Lead Minister Search Updates

Published: July 18, 2021

My name is Bryan Brokaw, and it was a great honor to be asked by the elders to serve as the team lead for the the search committee for our next Lead Minister at Greenville Oaks. Our committee has met almost every other week since the beginning of June. We feel it is important to keep you regularly updated on our progress throughout the process.

Currently we are working through our evaluation and screening process. We are excited to already have more than 25 prospective names on our list that we will begin vetting in the coming weeks.

A great deal of work lies ahead for the search team, but we are thankful and find rest in the knowledge that God is in control. We would ask for your continued prayers for not only the committee and the search process, but also for continued prayers for those currently leading the church and those who God is preparing to lead the church in the future.

This web page will provide updates on the search, as well as a link to contact team members. Please feel free to reach out to one of us at any time if you have questions or want to send a word of encouragement.

It truly is a blessing to serve on this committee that the elders appointed to serve our church family. I look forward to seeing what God has in store for this incredible place.
