Jun 5, 2022

Micah McBay, known for his Christian ministry work and teaching in Texarkana, has been named the new Venue and Tourism Manager for Greenville, Texas, according to City Manager Summer Spurlock.

McBay was interim Music Minister at Highland Park Baptist Church in Texarkana for almost two years, and he served as Minister of Music at Downtown First Baptist Church for nearly three years.

He served as Director of Music Ministry at Hardy Memorial UMC in Texarkana for over five years while a teacher at Texas High School on Kennedy Lane.

The Greenville appointment follows the retirement of former manager Kevin Banks earlier this year.  

Micah McBay is originally from Chattanooga, Tennessee but grew up mainly in Texarkana, Texas, and Texarkana, Arkansas. 

His career has taken him through multiple industries, including operations management, public education, Christian ministry, and as a restaurant owner and manager. 

One constant throughout his career was a love for the arts. He brings this passion to the role of Venue and Tourism Manager. 

Most recently, McBay served as Director of Modern Worship for First UMC in Plano, Texas. He has helped develop visual storytelling for the church and led the worship band each week. 

As an organizational manager, McBay led multiple businesses into growth phases by implementing systems to streamline operations. His philosophy for organizational management centers on people and their importance to healthy processes and growth. 

Micah McBay firmly believes that when people are treated with kindness and respect, they will be strong team players who help an organization grow.

His work in operations management and the arts and his entrepreneurial drive and spirit led him to apply for Venue and Tourism Manager in Greenville, Texas. He said he would like to bring his philosophy to Greenville. This approach will help him develop relationships throughout the community to help him market the amazing City of Greenville. 

McBay said he hopes that Greenville will continue to grow and thrive as the community works together to build toward the future with time and effort. 

The worship leader and tourism manager said he enjoys reading, discussing philosophy, playing music, acting, finding great food, and watching his beloved Tennessee Volunteers play college football and basketball. 

He holds degrees in music, history, and education. McBay most recently attended Texas A&M University in Commerce, where he received his master's degree in theatre.

His wife is a high school art teacher and between them, they have four children, a granddaughter and a daughter-in-love. 

McBay said he hopes to be heavily involved in the Greenville music, theatre, and art communities once he settles into his new home. 

The City of Greenville said: "We are pleased to welcome Micah McBay to his new position with the City of Greenville and are confident he will continue the tradition of excellence the city has achieved."

McBay officially joined the City of Greenville staff on Wednesday, June 1, 2022.
