Lead Collective exists to
Lead Collective Formed in the Fall of 2019 as several ministries decided to link arms and work more closely together in pursuit of a shared vision for the city of Greenville.
- The first of these ministries (Great Outdoor Adventure Trips) better known as GOAT, was founded by Ryan McCrary in 2008. What began as a hobby, became a thriving ministry, and
full-timejob for Ryan.
- Several years later as one of the GOAT staff members began to see an increasing need for a
neighborhood focusedministry in the Nicholtown community, Cam Hill and his wife Joy formed Éleos ministry. Both of these ministries serve at-risk teens in the Greenville community, employing unique strategies to achieve the same outcome – students equipped in their God-given potential, leading their peers andchanging the world.
- When Cam and Ryan were approached by Kim Mogan, Founder
andDirector of GirlUp GVL, (a ministry serving vulnerable and marginalized teen girls) they decided to form a collective that would allow these ministries to be more effective through strategic partnerships and shared resources. GirlUp GVL decided to branch out on their own in the Spring of 2020, but we continue to partner closelytogether.
We truly are better together than we are apart.
