Prior to coming to Charleston, he served as Youth Associate at First Baptist Church, Greenville, SC and as Minister with Youth and Families at Providence Baptist Church, Charlotte, NC. His responsibilities at Providence include Youth, Education, Missions, and "other activities deemed necessary."
"I love it when people gain an understanding of the gospel or of God in a way that is real and tangible. I try hard to make bridges so that the gap between us and God is as narrow as possible. Some days I succeed and other days people wonder what I tried to do. Regardless, the journey is fun I enjoy walking with people as we all seek a closer relationship with God and with each other."
Woody enjoys cycling, watching and participating in sports, writing, and reading. He is married to Kristen and he loves spending time with his children--Brooks, Blair, Sarah, and Matthew.
