Byron Britain Elder
Area of Ministry: Elder
Family: Married to Misty for 20 years. She is the biggest reason for my success. She’s a great Mom and the rock of our family. We have two kids: Macey who is and Brady
Saved: I was saved at a very young age. My Dad was an A/G minister so I grew up in Church. My Dad and Mom were a great example of Godly parents to me and my two brothers. We constantly had missionaries and other remarkable men of God staying in our house. It was a wonderful atmosphere to grow up in and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Education: I was in college when I got a summer job at a car dealership. I decided to sit out of school for one year and I never looked back.
Current Line of Work: Dealer Principal at Britain Chevrolet Cadillac in Greenville TX since 2006. I got (what I thought was) a summer job selling cars while I was in college. I hated selling cars but it was a time of learning to rely on the Lord. I ended up working at that dealership for 8 years in several different roles. I still didn’t look at it as a career but in retrospect, the Lord was preparing me. In 2006 we got the opportunity to buy the Chevrolet dealership in Greenville. We added Cadillac a few years later and continue to walk down the path the Lord has set us on.
One of the Things I Find Most Fascinating: I am amazed, when I look back, at how many times the Lord has intervened in my life. It’s literally been one miracle after another since I was 3 years old. I can’t imagine where my family, my business, or my overall life would be without God’s hand and direction!
