Michael Greer is a minister at Aiken Chapel Baptist Church in Greer.Staff/Alan DeVorsey
Name: Michael Greer
With a long history in management in tow, Michael Greer is poised to tackle his next goal - becoming an ordained minister.
"I'm interested in developing people," he said."I know that my position is to help."
Greer is one of several ministers at Aiken Chapel Baptist Church in Taylors, where he has attended church for most of his life.
He is also the general manager and an operating partner in Ryan's Steakhouse of Simpsonville.
Although seemingly unrelated, Greer said that his gift for managing and leading people acquired through years of practice on the job goes hand in hand with leading a congregation.Good leaders are also good followers he said.The trick is knowing when to be in which role.
"You have to learn to read people and then meet them on their level, whatever that may be," he said.
When God chooses someone for a task, he equips him for the job, Greer said.During his career in management, Greer has learned to deal with varying personalities and work ethics.
The philosophy around the restaurant is that there are two customers: internal and external.In order to take care of the external customers - the people who come to eat - you must first take care of the internal customers, your employees, he said.
"You relate that to church by taking care of the congregation first, and then you go after the ones who are not in there already," he said.
The call to minister came to Greer like it does to many others.It started in 1995 as a genuine desire to help others and share the gospel.Nothing - including becoming a church trustee, joining the usher board and teaching Sunday school - seemed to make a dent in the growing urge, he said.
"It was always on my mind almost to the point where it was a burden.Because I didn't want to think about it," he said.
Finally, he said his path was revealed to him and he began attending divinity school.He gave his first sermon in 2003.It was about remaining faithful to God, Greer said.
"It's like I'm in my rightful place," he said."It's wonderful."
Greer is an attentive student to his pastor, W.O. Harrison Sr., who has helped him quite a bit "on this Christian walk."
Greer's career in management started toward the end of high school, when he worked at Arby's.He was considering joining the Marines with his cousin or attending the University of South Carolina.He decided on neither and began taking classes at Greenville Tech, where he met his wife.
After a short stint in insurance, Greer came back to the restaurant industry, and has been with it since.He was a general manager at Bojangles and Quincy's for several years before moving to Ryan's, where he has been for the past seven years, he said.
As a manager, Greer said his goal is to maximize each worker's potential.Whatever 100 percent is for that person, that's what he's after.The restaurant is part of a partnership with the school district to hire at-risk and challenged kids, he said.
These are the kids whom people have given up on or written off, he said.His goal is to give them a second chance to prove to themselves that they are capable of more than what they thought, he said.
In 2003, the restaurant received the Triumph of the Human Spirit award from the Greenville County Committee on Accessibility.It's an award the entire restaurant is proud of.
In his down time, Greer is focused on being a husband and a father to his twin daughters Alexis and Ashlyn, 9, and son Austin, 5.He believes that strong families make strong congregations.
"Everything starts with the family," he said.
Accordingly, he volunteers regularly at Greenbriar Elementary where his daughters attend school.He's a homeroom dad, an ex-officio of the School Improvement Council and is a past chairman of the committee.Vickie is a homeroom mom, he said.
He also volunteers at the Greenville Rescue Mission every other Monday night, cooking, cleaning and serving, he said.
For fun, he, Austin, Greer's brother Bill and sometimes his brothers-in-law take up their shared passion - golf.Even little Austin has his own set of clubs.
"If I could give any advice to other ministers, it's to listen and be faithful to the leadership that God has put you under," he said.
