Debbie Haag

Office Manager

Debbie lives near Lexington, and has one daughter, Madelyn. She has worked in various fields, including bookkeeping, insurance and paralegal work, but came to work for CBFSC the first time in 1998 as the secretary when the office in Columbia was first opened. She left in October of 2000, but returned to CBFSC in January of 2008. Debbie enjoys spending time with friends and family, travel, and movie nights.

Wayne Patterson

Disaster Response Coordinator

Before accepting the appointment as Disaster Response Coordinator for CBFSC, Wayne served in a variety of roles with CBFSC, including Moderator and Treasurer. He also served on and chaired several committees for CBFSC, as well as serving at the National level of CBF on their Coordinating Council and Governing Board. He has led the Disaster Response efforts of FBC Pendleton, completing over 60 mission trips since hurricane Katrina. Wayne is a deacon, Sunday school teacher, kitchen worker, choir member, and active volunteer/team leader for local mission projects that FBC Pendleton elects to pursue.

The Patterson family moved to Charleston SC in 1976 during the Bicentennial celebration and Wayne taught for 2 years at The Citadel before moving to Clemson in 1978. He retired from Clemson University in 2008 after a 30-year career as a tiger. His Doctoral degree in Business Administration is from the University of Arkansas, and he holds a BS and MA from the University of Alabama.

Our Coordinating Council

The Coordinating Council is the governing body of CBFSC. All of its members are volunteers.

A Nominating Committee recommends Council members to serve for three-year terms (or unexpired terms). The names are presented to the general membership for approval at the annual Business Meeting held during the General Assembly every spring.

The Council does its work through teams and committees, sometimes in person but more often virtually.
