Pastors Ed & Brittany Schau
Beloved Children's, Youth, and Young Adults Pastors
Our journey with Beloved started in June of 2012 at The Father's House Church. We were invited to join the leadership family as Children's Pastors, which has been a desire for us for the majority of our lives -- to see the power of God flowing through children! When we unified with Beloved Church, we were happy to link arms with the vision and love that Beloved Church bestowed.
We each attended the Gibbor School of Ministry at TFH, which is now Freedom School of Ministry. We have experienced so much breakthrough from those two years of incredible ministry school! We are more equipped than ever to show the kids how to actively pursue God in their lives, as well as teaching them that they can have a relationship with our Lord Jesus, and it's not just for adults."
Ed and Brittany are college sweethearts, both graduated from Evangel University, Ed with a Bachelor of Business Administration, Brittany with Associates of Health Care. After graduation, the couple hopped on board with volunteering at their church, James River Assembly, in Ozark, Missouri, then Central Assembly in Springfield, Missouri. This is where they developed their ministry dreams and goals. They are committed to see children and adults develop incredible, authentic faith in Jesus Christ. Ed and Brittany have many years experience with kids, youth, and family ministry.
"We have been married since July 2008, and share two gorgeous girls, Jovie and Braylee. Our little family is nestled in a cozy home in a nearby city of Lena, Freeport. We have a heart to reach into the depths of creation and pull out God's goodness, everywhere we tread our feet! Freeport is ours for the 'taking' [back], and with our Beloved Freeport location, we are planning on doing just that! We are passionate about seeing the work of Christ expand not only in our city, but also in the nation and internationally.
