On Sunday, May 5, Ryan Hill was approved, by the church, to be brought on as co-pastor to work alongside of the church and Pastor Martin. Ryan will ultimately become the Senior Pastor, but not until Pastor Martin retires. This will ensure that Metro Baptist Church is set up to experience our best days moving forward.
Ryan and his wife, Heather, were married at Metro fifteen years ago and Ryan became the Children’s Pastor and part-time Bible teacher at Metro Christian Academy. Heather taught Kindergarten at MCA for two years. During that time, God called Ryan and Heather to serve as church planting missionaries in Thailand. They spent the next nine years learning the language, ministering in churches, and pastoring the Immanuel Baptist Church in Baan Bueng, Thailand. Two years ago, the Hill family moved back to Tennessee and Ryan has served here at Metro in a variety of roles from Youth Pastor to Assistant Pastor. Ryan earned a Bachelor of Arts in Missions from Tennessee Temple University in 2004 and a Master of Ministry from Piedmont International University in 2019. Ryan’s hobbies include golfing, and watching the Atlanta Braves and Georgia Bulldogs. Ryan and Heather are the proud parents of Addisyn (12), Branson (9), and Judson (7).
