Emily McBride

PreSchool and Children’s Minister

I love Children’s ministry. All children are capable of learning the truths of God’s Word. I seek to partner with parents as we share the goals of helping their children: Encounter Christ, Equipping them as disciples and finding ways for them to Engage their communities for Jesus.

The McBride family

I have been married to Ryan for 14 years and together we have three children, Perry, Macy and Nolan. I came to Ridgedale as the Preschool and Children’s Minister in October 2021. I graduated from the University of the Cumberlands in 2005 and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2008 with a Master of Arts in Christian Education with an emphasis in Children’s Ministry.

One of my most favorite things to do is to watch my children do what they love. We spend a lot of time in recitals, gyms, on ball fields and creating projects. I love to wonder up and down the aisles of local antique stores while sipping a cup of coffee.
