Vice President for Strategic Initiatives
Jay Boyd joined the Connie Maxwell family in August 2020. He has a long history of being connected to Christian child welfare that began at an early age with his parents. His mother led advancement efforts at Florida Baptist Children’s Home for more than 20 years, and his father served as a youth pastor. Boyd can see the immeasurable impact that spending time on that campus with the children had on his life. That is partly what motivated him to move his family to Greenwood.
Jay completed both a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism & Mass Communication and a Master of Business Administration from Samford University. He also holds a Master of Arts in Leadership from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Boyd is an avid hunter who enjoys all outdoor activities. He and his wife Lauren have two children, Brayden and Isabella.
