Tim & Christine Schmidt
We began our lives together at Nyack College where we met and graduated with Bachelor degrees in Bible. We were married just prior to our senior year in August of 1987. We stayed in the New York City area after graduating to train at Redeeming Love Christian Center under our spiritual parents, Pastors Clinton and Sarah Utterbach.
God was pulling at our hearts to return to Rochester (where Pastor Tim grew up) to begin this church. Since 1990, it has been an exciting journey to be a part of what God is doing in this city. Our desire is that all may know that they were created in his image and likeness, they are valued, and that he has a wonderful plan for their lives.
We have three awesome kids, Sarah, Gabriella and Zachary, a dog named Jethro and a cat, Genivive, who thinks we work for her.
Our greatest desire is to love God and love people. This has become the culture of Jubilee.
We love this flock and feel extremely privileged to shepherd them. You won’t find perfect pastors here (or any perfect people), but we know that you will find genuine love, acceptance, and a passion for God and his Word! Every believer needs a place to call home. We want you to know you are welcome here!
