Eddie Schmidt

Lake County Campus Pastor
Lake County, Pastors

Eddie Schmidt is our Lake County Campus pastor. He says the main part of his job is to “Love Lake County!”


Originally from Bloomington, Illinois, Eddie started as an intern in 2011, and came on staff as a pastor in 2013. “I use to be the Student Pastor.”


When asked what he loves about Journey, he says “I love the heart of Journey… everyone’s welcome is an incredible vision to run after!”


“My lovely bride is Samantha and we have two kids, John Wayne & Ella Rose. If I wasn’t a pastor, I would be a professional skeeball player. I’m not sure if I can earn a living playing skeeball but I sure do love playing when I go to the arcades!”
