Jason McNeese

Pastor McNeese was born into a pastor’s home in August of 1973. The Holy Ghost put his heart under severe conviction and for several months he wrestled with his own self-righteousness. Finally God brought him to the end of himself and he saw so startlingly clear that “all our righteousness’s are as filthy rags.” One night while lying on the bottom bunk in his bedroom on Rogers Lane in Tunnel Hill, Georgia, Jason finally relented to the wooing of the Holy Ghost. He ran across the hall and kneeling beside his parents he turned that bed into an old fashioned altar, called upon God and received that “gift of God…eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

When Jason was 18 years old, God called him to preach. Again he wrestled with that calling but God made it abundantly clear and one night while laying on the bottom bunk in his bedroom on Cody Road in Columbus, Georgia, he finally relented and accepted God’s Will for his life. It has been an interesting journey since that night which has led to many other decisions and many other destinations down many other roads until August of 2004 when God led Jason to become the Senior Pastor of Rural Retreat Baptist Church. Jason spent 10 years at Rural Retrat Baptist Church, until he was called to be the pastor at Emmorton Baptist Church in July of 2014.


Assistant Pastor

Fred Eskridge


The Fred & Skyler Eskridge Family


Fred Eskridge grew up in South Jersey where he spent his childhood and high school years. After pursuing various interests including working with horses at an Equestrian Boarding Facility, playing football for a University, and bodybuilding in the NPC, Fred still knew there was something missing in his life.
His uncle had been saved and began to influence Fred and his mother to visit Solid Rock Baptist Church where Fred came to realize what was missing in his life. It was at Solid Rock Baptist Church that Fred came to know the Lord Jesus as his personal Saviour and began the journey that would take him to Vision Baptist College where he would not only acquire a Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral Theology with a minor in Youth Ministries but he would also meet his life-mate, Skyler.
Skyler grew up in a Christian home where she learned about Jesus and came to know Him as her personal Saviour at an early age. Skyler is a graduate of the Academy which is a part our ministry here at Emmorton. She went on to prepare for a life of serving the Lord by attending Vision Baptist College where she would meet her husband, Fred. God has graciously blessed their home with a joyful little boy, Titus. Much of their story remains to be written and we are excited that God has put them here for this chapter of their life story.


It is our joy to have this Christian young couple serving in our ministry in a variety of capacities which include Student Ministries, Emmorton Baptist Academy and in the Music Program of the Church.
