Deacon George Schmidt was invited to Covenant by his brother-in-law in 1982. One week later George and his wife, Cathy, came to faith through the Evangelism Explosion presentation by Covenant’s first pastor, Dave Brewer. This has been the first and only church George has ever belonged to and he has served as a youth leader, Jr. Church teacher, a deacon and softball coach. George and Cathy have 3 grown children, David, Rebecca and Christine. In his free time George likes to walk on the bike path with Cathy and especially enjoys Phillies baseball and Eagles football.
