Meet the Team

Pastor Justin

Lead Pastor

Hello, my name is Justin, and I wanted to tell you about my journey and how God has impacted my life in amazing ways. My wonderful wife and I have been married for 20 awesome years. We were married pretty young, she was 19 and I was 20, and we often say that we grew up together. We really have had a great journey so far, with our six wonderful kids, and every day we get a new glimpse of how much grace and love God sent us in the form of these beautiful kids. 

I grew up in the church so she has always been a part of my life. It was at the age of 7, in Mrs. Weaver’s Jr. Worship service, that I committed my life to Christ. Then, at 17, during a worship service at Winding Creek Camp, the Holy Spirit drew me back to Himself. It was there I received my clear call to ministry, confirming what God was calling me into. 

My wife and I strive to allow Christ to be the cornerstone of our lives. As such, the Church has been instrumental in guiding me and pointing others, including myself, towards Him. It's in this community, from Hastings to Nashville, where I've seen real, tangible evidence of what living a Christ-centered life looks like. My role in ministry has allowed me to witness and participate in the transformative power of God's work, changing lives day by day—including my own. 

I'm overwhelmed with gratitude and humbled for the privilege to serve in His Church. Every day, I'm reminded of the greatness of God's love and the ways He uses our lives to demonstrate His glory. This calling I've received is more than a role; it's a testament to God’s faithfulness and a life-long commitment to spread His word and love. 

This snapshot of my story isn't just about where I've been or what I've done—it's a heartfelt expression of thanks. Thanks to God for His relentless pursuit of my heart, for every opportunity to lead others closer to Him, and for the joy and responsibility of being part of His Church. Here in Nashville, I’m excited to continue this journey, hoping to touch hearts and change lives through the love of Jesus Christ. I’m eager to walk this path together, celebrating every step where God leads us.

- His Servant,
Pastor Justin Schultz
