Thanks for reading GwdToday - Everyday!


Rev. Randy Harling, pastor of First Baptist Church in Simpsonville, will be the next president of Connie Maxwell Children’s Home following the retirement of Dr. Ben Davis on Sep. 1.

Davis will complete 21 years of service at Connie Maxwell when he retires.  He has served as president since 2002 and he previously served as vice president for development and operations. Before joining the Connie Maxwell staff, Davis served on the Board of Trustees for Connie Maxwell while he and wife Polly resided in Fountain Inn where he was mayor.

Harling made the announcement to his church family on May 18 in morning worship.  Rev. Harling will be Connie Maxwell’s ninth president in its 122 year history. Randy has served as lead pastor of First Baptist Church since 1997. Under his leadership the church began a ministry called “A Home for Me.” First Baptist partnered with the S.C. Department of Social Services to lead his church and other churches in operating foster homes. Harling and his wife, Sherri, have personally fostered four boys over an eight year period. The Harlings have two sons of their own, Ben and Ryan.

“The presidency of Connie Maxwell possesses a legacy of capable and committed individuals who have given their lives to the provision of homes for children who have none,” said Ronald L. Carroll, a vice president with Palmetto Health and chairman of Connie Maxwell’s board of trustees. “Rev. Harling’s expressed desire to yield to God’s calling to Connie Maxwell indicates that that legacy will live on.”  Dr. Ben Davis added,

“Randy (Harling) has a sincere heart for children in need and has shown that over the years through his efforts at his church,” Davis said of his successor. “I welcome him and will be working with him for a good, smooth transition. Polly and I will be praying for Randy and Sherri as they assume their roles at Connie Maxwell and we trust they will experience the blessings and satisfaction we have had by serving here.”

Harling is a graduate of Furman University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
