Pat Schmidt

Executive Director


After spending the last ten years as a co-owner of a retirement planning firm that he helped grow to thirteen offices across Ohio, Pat felt called to part ways with his business and focus his love for the Lord and love for people by joining the Northwest Bible Church Team in May 2022.

As Executive Director, he will focus his time and energy on ministry and staff development. He was introduced to Northwest by his now-wife,  Lauren, in 2011 and it’s been his church home for him and his family ever since.

Pat was drafted by the Atlanta Braves as a left-handed pitcher following his senior year of high school. After spending four years in the minor league system, Pat returned home to Ohio where he attended and graduated from The Ohio State University.

Pat & Lauren make their home in Dublin with their three young children Ella, Addie, and Luke.
