Ryan Hill


Ryan and his wife, Heather, were married at Metro in 2004. 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.  

In 2016 the Hill family moved back to Tennessee. Ryan has served here at Metro in a variety of roles from Youth Pastor to Assistant Pastor. In August of 2019, Ryan became senior pastor of Metro Baptist Church after Pastor Martin retired.

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 three children: Addisyn, Branson, and Judson.
