Ricky Wilson is from Cincinnati, Ohio who moved to South Carolina with his wife, Sarah, daughter Elliana, and son Titus to plant Impact Drayton in May 2017. God has given Ricky a broken heart for people far from God who are seeking purpose and identity. Growing up in a small town in Cincinnati, both of Ricky's parents were drug addicts. At the age of 12, Ricky began buying and selling drugs and stolen property to care for his family. In his teenage years, he was filled with hate and anger and dealing with depression, PTSD, and anxiety. With all that was going on, Ricky tried everything the world had to offer to "fix" himself, but it wasn't until age twenty when he was invited to church for the first time in his life that he experienced the love of Jesus and it changed everything! Since then, He has been on a mission to share his experience with Jesus so others can be freed from the same things that plagued him for so long!
Hey my name is Sarah Carruth and I am the Children's Director at Impact Drayton. I am a graduate of USC Upstate with a Sociology degree. I am currently working on my Masters in Divinity at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. My path was changed when I was in college and joined a college ministry called BCM this ministry strengthened my faith in God and gave me a foundation that I needed to walk the path of what He has called me to do and directed my path to where I am today I enjoy teaching and showing kids the love of God and how it looks like to be in a real relationship with Him. It is a passion of mine to give each kid who crosses my path a solid foundation of their walk and what it means to be a true follower of God.

My name is Cory Hammond. I grew up right here in Spartanburg! I grew up loving music and always hearing about Jesus. I didn’t actually accept him until I was around eighteen years old. I felt a calling very early in my walk, and I’m so excited to be the worship pastor for Impact Drayton! If I can serve you or help you in any way feel free to contact me at
