Connie Maxwell’s largest facility and headquarters for its statewide ministry is the Greenwood campus. Here, school-aged boys and girls live in nine family-style homes. Live-in staff help to meet the children’s physical, social, and emotional needs. Professional services staff members are a resource for children and their families as they work towards family reunification. The campus has an extensive activities building, a swimming pool, sports fields, and an infirmary. Children on the Greenwood campus attend public schools and are encouraged to participate in extracurricular school activities. Students 12 and older also have after-school campus jobs to develop good work habits and money management skills. Our Transition to Independent Living program offers youth 16 and older the help needed to prepare for young adulthood.
Connie Maxwell Main Campus
Connie Maxwell Baptist Church is located on the Greenwood campus at 215 Terrell Smith Avenue in Greenwood, South Carolina. While Connie Maxwell Baptist Church is a part of Connie Maxwell Children’s Ministries, it is also a community church whose doors are open to all people. The vision of Connie Maxwell is to be a healthy, effective, and growing church that is also exciting so that people of all ages and demographics are excited to gather to worship and grow together in their walk with Christ. Our Sunday Morning worship time is currently from 10:30am -11:30am. Our services are also streamed through the church’s YouTube channel which you can find at the link below. Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, that is subject to change and is also the only weekly meeting we currently offer.
