Wade Bibb, Senior Pastor

Wade Bibb has served Central Bearden since 2010, but lived in East Tennessee much longer. He is married to Melissa and they have one daughter, Emily. Wade enjoys being outdoors, hiking, working out, reading, getting lost in movies, and after teaching at universities for 16 years, he secretly desires to give an exam after every sermon to encourage active listening.
