Next Gen/Student Minister  | 317.831.1900, ext. 2017  |  fschmitt@mgchurch.org


Fred Schmitt has been a Student Minister at Mt. Gilead since 2009 but his first interaction with the church took place when he was a high school student, and his singing group played at Mt. Gilead. Performing has always been part of who Fred is, and if he could, he would love to master stand-up comedy. Speaking of, Fred works at a stand-up desk when he’s in the office, but no matter where he at, he’s constantly working toward his goal of creating connections between students and the community. Sometimes this goal of getting students to Jesus is difficult but Fred does so by constantly communicating and publicizing opportunities for others to draw nearer to God. Fred and his wife, Erin, have been married for over a decade and the couple has two young children.

The Bible verse that means the most to Fred is Ephesians 2:10: “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, for good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
