pastor joel schroeder

Joel Schroeder was born and raised in Blair, Nebraska. He is the third of four children, with two older brothers and one younger sister. His dad, Ed, owns and operates his own CPA firm in Blair. Joel’s mom, Pam, is a nurse. Pam educated Joel and his siblings at home through elementary school and then they attended a private Christian school in junior high and high school. It was at Omaha Christian Academy that Joel learned to LOVE sports, basketball in particular.

In Joel’s senior year of high school he began contemplating and feeling “called” to ministry. His love for Christ, his love of learning and the desire to share that knowledge with others led him to pursue his Masters of Divinity at Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa. In his pursuit to educate others and utilize his gift of teaching to it’s fullest, Joel continues his education as he writes his dissertation for his PhD in Theology from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Kansas.

Joel and his wife, Bethany, met and married here in Wichita. They share a love of people and a heart to serve God’s most precious creation. They both have a passion to introduce others to Jesus Christ, to teach what a relationship with Him looks like and above all, to see that relationship grow and thrive.
