pastor | t. thad smith
Thad claims Rabbitown, GA as his hometown. Actually, he grew up in White Sulphur, GA but the two 'metropolitan' areas have grown so much that he can't tell the difference between them.
His roots run through South Carolina. Parts of his paternal grandmother's side of the family migrated from there while a few relatives returned to reside in Charleston and Columbia.
Columbia International University -Columbia, SC- awarded him an undergraduate degree, partially from pity and partially to get rid of him. Surely, moving him along factored into their decision since he finished in just over three years.
Five years of student ministry follow the completion of an undergraduate degree. During that time, he met and married his wife, Tamma.
Tamma and Thad have one child (Addison), one cat (Scat) and one Labrador retriever (Maggie). Maggie is their second Labrador retriever, the first, Lucy, was a Texan.
Thad and Tamma lived in Fort Worth, Texas for 2+ years in the middle 90's. Thad completed a master's degree at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in December of 1996.
Through the end of the 90's Thad did single adult ministry at Johnson Ferry Baptist, Marietta, GA. He planted The Church at Catoosa, Ringgold, GA from 2000 until 2008 then pastored Morningside Baptist, Columbus, GA for almost 10 years.
Thad and Tamma come to Edisto Beach Baptist from the process of planting a second church, North Shore, Canton, GA. Thad has pastored Edisto Beach since October, 2019.
Thad rides a Harley, drinks coffee, tinkers with mechanical stuff and uses a hands-free cell device. If you see him wandering around Edisto 'talking to himself' don't worry, he's on the cell phone.
