THE REV. JOHN SCHMIDT
John graduated from Furman University in 2011 with a B.A. in Studio Art. He spent the next four years in Washington, D.C., serving with the high school non-profit youth ministry, FOCUS. It was there he experienced and realized the foundational role of relationships in ministry. He graduated with an M.Div. from Duke Divinity School in 2018, where he was involved with the Anglican Episcopal House of Studies and promptly was ordained through the Diocese of Dallas. He spent the following two years serving in North Dallas suburban and rural contexts. John is passionate about community: forming, developing, and being a part of one. He believes the church should offer a robust welcome. He is excited to continue exploring the intersection of theology and the arts. And he hopes that all might come to know that they are fully loved and fully known by God.
