Lead Pastor of Compassion:
Noah D. Schumacher
Noah and his wife Michelle Schumacher are the proud parents of three children. Their family motto is, “Love big or go home.”They have a deep passion to serve others in discovering the wonder and mystery of following Jesus. A journey they say is far from easy but always good.
Outside of pastoring Compassion, Noah is passionate about other nations in need. His passion has taken him around the world serving and training other believers in Central America, East Africa, and with the persecuted Church in the Middle East. In previous years, Noah was also a high school bible teacher at Lake Center Christian School in Uniontown, OH. He holds a Masters of Divinity degree from Ashland Theological Seminary and is currently a Doctoral student at Northern Seminary in Chicago, IL focusing on the study of the Historical Jesus and Early Judaism and how these two areas can breathe new life into the church of today.
Together, Noah and Michelle seek to live out the Gospel of Jesus as "recklessly" and transparently as they can. This was especially evident in January of 2019 when Noah (with the full support and blessing of Michelle) donated half of his liver to a young child who’s life was saved. A child he did not know.
Together, they envision a diverse and Spirit Filled gathering of people from all backgrounds being made whole and thriving in their pursuit of Jesus. Especially those who have been harmed by the Church and/or Christians, hoping that all may rediscover the hope of Christ and true community. Noah writes at NoahDSchumacher.com.
