Jeff McKinney
Elder at LC3

I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and moved to Myrtle Beach in 1975. I met my wife, Sue, at our 10-year class reunion in 1991. We were married in 1993. We have 5 children Olivia, the twins Sam & Hannah, Seth and Charlie. I have been in the construction industry since 1996. I was born a Dallas Cowboy fan, but I still love to surf and work on my 1957 Chevy Belair.

Rick Metcalf
Elder at LC3

I have been happily married to Janine since 1976. We have two sons and four wonderful grandchildren. We moved to Murrells Inlet in 2016 and became partners here at Low Country Community Church in 2017. I spent 35 years in the Industrial and Marine Coatings Industry. Most of those years were served in sales and engineering. I am an AMPP Certified Coatings Inspector and Instructor for conventional and nuclear applications.

I retired from fulltime employment in August of 2018. Serving the Lord at LC3 by supporting our church leadership and watching God’s hands work through our church has been pure joy. I enjoy reading, golfing, traveling and meeting new people.

Greg Taylor
Elder at LC3

My wife Debbie and I moved to Murrells Inlet from Indianapolis, IN in April of 2017. We have been blessed with 2 children and 5 grandchildren.

Since April of 2017, the Lord has led us to serve here at LC3 Church:
Debbie with the Kenya Kids mission outreach along with LC3’s children’s ministry. I am an avid golfer who loves singing with the LC3 Praise Team (with my daughter) and follow the Indiana University men’s basketball program and Alabama Crimson Tide football. Debbie and I have served over 40 years combined laity ministry as marketplace believers.

Kent Barhydt

My wife Sara and I have been married for 38 years and have 2 daughters.
I retired after 30 years as a police officer in Indiana. My hobbies include golfing and the beach. I am currently the Boys Varsity Golf Coach at St.
James High School in Murrells Inlet. I have been a partner of LC3 for 4 ½ years.

Ray Tilton
Elder at LC3

I was born in Lincoln, Maine in November of 1951, but I spent most of childhood in the small town of Sturbridge Massachusetts. I graduated from Bentley College with a BSA and Bryant College with an MBA accounting concentration. I am an Air Force Veteran from 1971 to 1975. I have been married to my wife Mary since September of 1990. We moved here from Rhode Island 5 years ago. We don’t not have any children, but we are blessed with rescue dogs since marriage. Fun Fact: Accepted Jesus during an old-fashioned Tent Revival in Massachusetts in August of 1995.

Mary had been saved for many years. She would attend church alone each Sunday and would ask people to pray for my salvation. Prayers are powerful, so never stop praying for loved ones. Don’t give up.

My wife and I have 1 son, 1 daughter and 5 grandkids – all who reside in Baltimore.

David Jolliff

Although born in Ohio, I consider myself a southerner by the grace of God & the fact that my wife, Cindy, & our 2 small children, Davy and Kari, grew up in the Grand Strand area since 1984. I am retired from General Electric due to health issues. Over the past 40 years, I have enjoyed being involved in youth sports. I also enjoy playing golf. Over the past 40 years, I was honored to sing in several gospel quartet groups such as “A Few Good Men” who sang across the Grand Strand & who sang for opening day at the Pelicans Ballpark. My greatest pleasure now, besides my wife & kids, are my grandkids, CJ, Stella Grace and Luke.

Soon thereafter the family moved to the suburbs of Washington D.C. growing up in Montgomery County, MD. In December 1970, I was accepted as a police officer candidate with Montgomery County, MD. During my 27 years in law enforcement, I was tasked with an assortment of assignments which I found each exciting and challenging. As my second career for the last 14 years, I have been a partner in Hawkeye Realty, a small real estate firm. I have been blessed with 2 children from a previous marriage, Rick Jr. & Lorie Ann and now 5 grandchildren and several great grandchildren. The inspiration of my life, Louise Goodman, and I have been married for 19 years. I thank her for leading me to the spiritual awakening that led to my profession of faith in 2001. We both have been members of LC3 since 2001 and have enjoyed leadership in small groups, Project NOAH, LC3 Kenya Kids and serving when needed.

William “Bill” Hardwick
Deacon Overseer

Originally from Indiana, I moved to Murrells Inlet, SC in 2016 with my wife, Christy and three children, William, Abigail and George. I currently own Hardwick Capital Management, an investment advisory firm and work for Platform Accounting Group as a Tax Manager. I have always loved music. I learned to play the guitar when I was 14 years old and immediately started playing music at school and at church camp. One of my greatest memories is playing camp songs on the 2 hour bus ride to church camp until my fingers bled. I learned the bass guitar, at the request of my Music teacher, so that I could help with the school music program when I was 15 years old. I ended up playing the bass guitar for the Show Choir, Pep Band and Marching Band. I have been honored to play the bass guitar in Praise and Worship for over 20 years. For relaxation and enjoyment, I listen to my vinyl record collection.
