Mr. Michael McBride
I am beyond excited to help teach and disciple your kids here at Northside. My passion for children’s ministry was ignited in 2012 when I worked for 3 months as a traveling Camp Counselor with a team from Lifeway. After 11 straight weeks, I was hooked. As a member of the graduating class of 2015, I received my Bachelors’ degree from USF with the intent of teaching, but God had different plans. That summer I took a job in production and children’s ministry at Bridgepoint Church developing and fostering an environment for 4th and 5th graders with an expert team of like-minded individuals.
Since Joining the Northside Family in 2018, I have had the honor to combine my love of production, technology, and children’s ministry as the Kindergarten - 8th grade Computer teacher and Chapel Production guru. I love to help kids navigate through our technology-rich culture, seeing how it can be used to compliment the gifts God has given us. In my classroom, we try new things, we understand that mistakes are opportunities, we create because God created us, we do the right thing because it’s the right thing, and we understand that because details matter to God, they should matter to us. Outside of the classroom, I’ve got a lovely wife, Karen, and the coolest son, Canaan.
