Wayne Myrick

Wayne Myrick, one of our beloved founders, went to be with the Lord on Janurary 24, 2021. He was named a life-time Board Member posthumously on April 12, 2021 at our annual Gospel Patron’s Dinner. We want to honor him and his tremendous contribution not only to Doulos Partners, but to each of our lives by this tribute.

Wayne Myrick began his construction career in the late 60s working in general construction before becoming a self-employed residential contractor from 1973 to 1977. After serving as superintendent and project manager for various Birmingham Alabama contractors, he worked for a decade with Harbert Construction International, rising from superintendent to Vice President of Construction. In 1993, Wayne started what is today Myrick, Gurosky & Associates. MG&A specializes in the Design/Build project delivery process for religious-related projects all over the southeast and beyond.

Wayne’s real foundation was a personal and committed relationship with Jesus Christ. A long-time member of Hunter Street Baptist Church in Hoover, Alabama, he served continuously in key roles at the church: Sunday School Superintendent, Deacon (and chairman of Deacons), Sunday School Teacher, Peacemaker Ministry Leader, and Mission team leader. In 1999, Wayne was selected as Stand Firm Magazine’s “Co-Man of the Year”. Wayne also served on the Foundation Board at Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky and as a member on the Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention representing Alabama. His wife Lynn lives in Vestavia Hills, Alabama. They have three adult children and a granddaughter and grandson.
