My name is Phil Schneider, and I’m a very busy guy.
I work as a high school teacher, a discipleship pastor, a writer, and a podcaster.
There is so much I’d like to tell you about me, but first…
A little bit about the most important people in my life:
My wife, Kaitlyn, and I have been married for nine years, and our daughter, Emmma, is five years-old. My girls are spirited and fun-loving, always looking to make memories. I couldn’t be more blessed.
Kaitlyn is a crafter, artist, and a beautiful singer. If God had given her half as much confidence as He gave her talent, she’d have already conquered the world.
Emma is creative like her mother and a whirlwind of busyness like me. She’s joyful, exuberant, and always good for a quick laugh.
I’ve been a public school teacher for ten years. The first six years of my career were spent in the inner city, where I learned a great deal about what the phrase “real life” actually means. For the past four years, I’ve been teaching in my home district, which has been a different kind of adventure, as I earn the right to be seen as an adult by the very people who taught me years ago.
I’ve been writing for ChurchMag since 2011 and am proud to have become of their senior staff writers. I also cohost ChurchMag’s weekly podcast with two of the most talented and hilarious guys I know. It’s been an absolute honor to be a part of this team, and I can’t wait to see it continue to grow.
The Ignorance of Church & State
This is my newest project, the brainchild of my friend Kevon, who describes himself as “politically ignorant.”
Each episode has us trying to answer a basic question or explain a nuanced topic that relates to the intersection of the church and politics in the United States. We’d love to have you join in the conversation by listening to the podcast and commenting on our website.
