Ridgeway Baptist Staff

Jackie Collins, Pastor
I would like to share with you a little about myself. I have been serving as a pastor now for more than 35 years, and before that I served as an associate pastor for two years while I was still in school. I am married to the former Janice Parker of Maiden, NC. We have two sons who are both adults, serving the Lord faithfully in their respective churches, Mark in Charlotte and David in Raleigh. Mark is a medical doctor, specializing in family medicine. He has a practice in south Charlotte. David is an accounting manager who works in the Research Triangle near Raleigh. Janice and I have four wonderful grandchildren and two "grand puppies."

Scott Sprinkle, Minister of Music
Scott Sprinkle, the associate pastor and minister of music at Ridgeway Baptist Church, is a native of Asheville, NC. He is the son of Rev. Larry and Sandra Sprinkle who reside in Asheville as well. Growing up in a minister’s home, Scott had an early appreciation for music and worship. As a child, Scott was involved in many of the Buncombe Baptist Association’s children and youth musicals. In elementary and junior high school, he became involved in operas with Mars Hill College, local community theater, and various choral events.
Scott graduated from Clyde A. Erwin High School in 1996. It was there that Scott met his future wife, Ericka. Both of them were active in the Erwin High School choral program.  They attended and graduated from Mars Hill College in 2000 and married in 2001. Scott and Ericka gave birth to two daughters, Kennedy and Avery.
In January 2000, Scott came to the church to serve as interim music minister. In June 2000, he became the full-time music minister and associate pastor. Scott is truly appreciative of the opportunity God has given him in these respective positions.
