Dave Schmidt

Lead Pastor

Dave loves working with a fun and vibrant staff and seeing so many young families coming to Ellerslie to meet with friends and worship Jesus. Married to Jenna with 3 energetic preschool children, Dave doesn’t think or do anything else! Dave is a life-long learner, enjoying reading a great book or refereeing soccer (which, he has discovered, is a great training ground for leading a family and relating to fellow staff members!). Having played soccer since he could walk, he is an avid NFL fan (“Go Eagles!”). 1 Timothy 4:16
summarizes his own life pattern and purpose.

“Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.”

— 1 Timothy 4:16 (NIV)
