The Youth Ministry Group

Welcome from Youth Ministry Group of the South Carolina Baptist Convention!


Whether you are new to youth ministry or have been a part of students’ lives for many years, we hope our website becomes a truly valuable resource for you. All of us in the Youth Ministry Group share the same passions…assisting youth leaders in becoming more effective in their student ministries AND encouraging students to live a life of faith in Christ that has a true influence on their morals, values, and the decisions they make. 




Steve Rohrlack has been in youth ministry longer than he’s willing to admit. With his longevity comes a wealth of experience, knowledge, and insight. Steve has taken on a new position at the Convention as the Generations Group Director, but it is obvious that his heart will always be in youth ministry. Sometimes it is hard to grow up and most youth guys/girls can understand this! 

Bryant Laird is the Generations Group newest addition as the Associate Director of Student Ministry! Bryant is from Cayce, South Carolina and attended CIU. After graduation, he served with World Changers National staff before he returned to Cayce to serve as a youth minister. Bryant is married to Olivia and they have three children- Ryleigh Kate, Molly, and Christian. 


Mellette Teague was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina. She came on board with us after her graduation from Clemson in May of 2014. She has a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Techincal Writing and Journalism. She married Travis on June 7, 2014. Mellette is a member at Shandon Baptist Church in Columbia, where her husband serves as the Middle School Pastor. She has a huge heart for youth and missions, specifically Kenya and Tokyo. 


The Youth Ministry Group doesn't have all the answers, but will do everything we can to help you find the answers. Please allow us to supply you with resources or anything else that will enhance your ministry!
