Miranda Schmidt

Program Coordinator

I was born and raised in the St. Louis area attending a LCMS Church and school through eighth grade. My family decided to move over to Waterloo, IL where I attended high school. Throughout high school and the beginning of college, I did what I could to put God on the back burner. However, He continued to show me His everlasting love. It was in my second year at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign where I heard God’s call for me to pursue ministry. I transferred to Concordia University Chicago my junior year and graduated in 2015 with my Bachelor of arts degree as a Director of Christian Education (DCE) with a minor in Theology. Eric, my high school sweetheart, and I got married in 2015. We live in Waterloo and we have a daughter named Kelsey. Some things I enjoy are music (listening and playing), camping, fishing, cooking, and going for walks with my family. We joined Faith Columbia in 2016 and I started on staff as the Columbia Program Coordinator in August of 2018.

My hope for Faith Columbia

My hope is that our programs would not only build and nurture disciples, but also provide opportunities for us to make connections with the surrounding communities.
