Dr. Richard R. Schmidt began his tenure as Union Grove Baptist Church's Senior Pastor after 39 years of Christian service. Dr. Schmidt's work for the Lord has included church planting, 20 years as an associate pastor, church administration, as well as traveling both nationally and internationally with Prophecy Focus Ministries.  Prophecy Focus Ministries was founded by Dr. Schmidt, a biblically sound prophetic teaching forum.  He can be heard frequently on "The Word for Life" through WVCY, as well as seen on his program, Prophecy Focus TV 30.  He served bi-vocationally for 30 years, with his public service culminating as acting Sheriff of Milwaukee County.  He and his wife Valori have served faithfully together for over 40 years.  Their three adult children live in Wisconsin along with their spouses.  Dr. Schmidt has a Ph.D. from Louisiana Baptist University along with a D.Min. from Northland University, and continues to study diligently as instructed by 2 Timothy 2:15-studying to show himself approved unto God, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. 


“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” -Jeremiah 29:11
