  • Maggie mcatee - JH. High Assistant Director

Even though she loved working with babies, Maggie missed her days in youth ministry. She started volunteering at her church and eventually joined the staff to help build a youth ministry. The Lord provided a way for Maggie to do both of these callings until He made it clear what was next in His plan. Maggie is excited to be in Greenville and back at Mitchell Road. In her free time, you’ll most likely find Maggie reading a book, visiting a coffee shop, or taking a long walk. She can’t wait to meet more families at MR and be part of this amazing Youth Staff!
