John Schneider

AWANA Director

John Schneider was raised in a loving Christian home in South St. Louis City.  He doesn’t remember a time when he was not in church and hearing the Gospel regularly.  In spite of that, John worried about death and hell because he knew he was not saved, but did not understand what God wanted from him.  At a Youth for Christ Conference at the age of 12, he finally understood the finished work of Christ on the cross, and he gave his life to Jesus Christ.  After being discipled by a wonderful Pastor and Youth Pastor at Brentwood Bible Church during his college years, John was asked to serve God as a Junior High School Sunday School teacher.  A few years after college, John met and married the love of his life Connie, and the two began a life together teaching and leading youth and children’s ministries at South County Bible Church. God has permitted them to remain in youth ministry in various roles, until Bethel Baptist Church became their home in January 2017.  Now they are thrilled to be leading the AWANA ministry, helping kid’s grow in their walk with God, and making His Word a part of their daily lives.

When not in church, John works as a System Engineer at Dell Technologies.  John and Connie have four grown children and two grandchildren.
