Hello, my name is Pastor Jake Schadel from the Valentine UMC. I have been married to my beautiful wife Andrea since we were teenagers, and together we have three wonderful children, Ethan, Lauren, and Sophia. I was raised in an agricultural setting and made a living doing an assortment of jobs that involved livestock, and heavy equipment before I felt a call to pastoral ministry. I feel called to minister to the faithful, make disciples, and equip saints for outreach into the community. I preach the Bible and Christ, and I love serving the Lord with all my heart! I was called to Valentine in July of 2021 and I look forward to serving this church and this community!
