Mrs. Connie McBride went home to be with the Lord on Friday, January 18, 2019. The PCC family will greatly miss her, and our prayers continue for her husband, Denis, and their children Joshua and Jarrod and their families.
She was known for excellence as an elementary teacher, influence as a principal, encouragement as a mentor, and support as a pastor’s wife. In 1986, Denis and Connie McBride came to Pensacola Christian Academy where she started as first grade teacher. Quickly earning a reputation for excellence, she became an elementary principal at PCA and served students, parents, and faculty for many years. Connie was a respected and compassionate mentor to other teachers. Her influence extended to education students at Pensacola Christian College and to Christian educators worldwide while she served as assistant editor for Abeka until her retirement in 2015. In recent years, her role was pastor’s wife, encouraging the ministry of her husband at Campus Church.
The funeral service will be held at the St. John Chapel on Sunday, January 20, at 3 p.m. The family will receive friends Sunday beginning at 1 p.m. in the St. John Chapel.
