Churches are the called out ones of Jesus Christ, living as a spiritual family seeking to advance the Kingdom of God through making disciples.
We believe the Scriptures paint a clear picture for the church: who the church is, what the church is about, and what the church does. At Radius, we envision our churches to embody the fullness of that picture. As Jesus refers to the word ‘church’ in Matthew 16 and 18, we can summarize the church as this: a spiritual family that advances the Kingdom of God.
We desire for these churches to be spaces where children of God learn to belong to each other as a spiritual family, and become a force that advances the Kingdom of God together. We believe that belonging to each other as a spiritual family happens as believers are faithful in a myriad of different behaviors that are done one believer to another. We believe that advancing the Kingdom of God happens as we love God, love the lost-poor-broken-oppressed, and make disciples of Jesus Christ, who make more disciples. We would say that this church space is the Lord’s plan A for His people to achieve those two things.
Radius is a network of churches in the upstate that are uniting and striving to live out this vision. Each has at least one leader who has been called, trained, and commissioned to lead a church within the Radius Network toward the biblical vision of the church. Each church includes participants who have humbled themselves as thankful recipients of the grace of God in Christ Jesus. You can learn more about those specific churches below.
If you are interested in learning more about community or how to begin journeying with a Radius community, please let us know!
Carson & Kathleen Joye – Pastors
The “bnb” part of our name refers to the fact that we are called to BELONG to each other as fellow believers, and BECOME more like Christ together. The “heir” part refers to Romans 8:17, “heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ.”
Tuesday nights we gather in a home in Eastside/Central Greenville to eat, discuss our abiding relationships, re-center on the Gospel, and practice love of one another and refinement into the image of Christ. There are many other spontaneous rhythms such as lunches, dinners, morning coffees, hangouts, random acts of love, etc.
John & Hannah Miller – Pastors
Ephesians 5:8 says: “for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.” The Lord has redeemed us and transformed us into new creations, we are now children of light. We want to be lighthouses, shining the light of the Lord wherever there is darkness. Our deepest desire is to know God. He has filled us with His Spirit and given us the Word to reveal His truth and heart for us. He has called us to live lifestyles of worship, to posture our hearts in adoration of Him. Our central meeting places are near Woodruff Road & I-385 and gather on Tuesday nights. We share a meal and have fellowship with one another, and then combine a mix of teaching and discussing the Word, worshipping, and/or sharing testimonies to grow in our intimacy with the Lord.
Josh & Kathleen Carroll – Pastors
In Lockstep, we lock arms together as we walk toward maturity in the ways we know God, love Him, love each other and love our neighbors. We meet in homes on Wednesday nights in Eastside Greenville, Greer, and Simpsonville to share a meal and pursue being lockstep with our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:18-23…I pray that you may know…his incomparably great power for those who believe…the same power exerted when he raised Christ from the dead…and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body.

“Daisy, Daisy! Give me your answer true…” Sure, some of our members may come across half-crazy, but they come by it honestly! We are a group of passionate people dedicated to the intentional pursuit of God, fellow community members, and whatever other people God places along our path. Our vision, “Family on Mission,” means that in these pursuits, we work together. Our name is an acknowledgement that no matter what we do, we work in “Tandem” with God and our spiritual family. We meet Wednesday evenings in the Eastside area (though some spokes of our wheel range as far as Simpsonville) where we break bread, live our lives, and celebrate God–in Tandem as a Family on Mission.
Johnny & Elyse Geggis – Pastors
Round table is a spiritual family that strives to know God, walk with God, and partner with God together. We meet on Thursday nights in the Mauldin/Simpsonville area. We love to eat, sing, study God’s word, and pray together during our weekly meetings.
Alex & Candice Foldenauer – Pastors
Our mission is to be a spiritual family on mission with the Lord to the people of the Pelham area. Our vision verse comes from Romans 10:13-15: “For ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.’ But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, ‘How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!'”
Palmer & Grace Primm – Pastors
We transplanted in early 2023 and are currently mostly “young” adults, with a mix of single, married, and parents. The name “Tethered” signifies our focus on more fully intertwining with Jesus, each other, and others around us. We also strive for individual spiritual maturity that bears fruit in influencing or discipling others. We meet on Wednesday evenings in the Cherrydale and Taylor sides of Greenville. Our Wednesday nights generally involve sharing a meal, open floor time, and facilitation in discussion, prayer, and/or worship. We also make a point to stay involved with each other throughout the week with fun get togethers or intentional “tiny” groups (2-4 people of the same gender).
Mike & Andrea Wilder – Pastors

We are a group of different families of all ages and life stages united as one family (a Tribe) in his kingdom. A typical week in Tribe is a shared meal with time to catch up with one another followed by a time of studying, worshiping and praying together. We rotate planning and facilitating monthly. Our weekly meeting subjects vary but allow us to focus on loving God, loving neighbors, loving each other and help equip us to make disciples. Tribe meets on Wednesdays at 6 pm on the Eastside of Greenville.
