Our Pastor

Bruce Schmidt became a follower of Christ as a young boy and has grown in his faith for over 50 years.  He has pastored churches in Minnesota and South Dakota, Chetek, Wisconsin, and now here in the Chippewa Valley.  He seeks to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ, and to help others in their faith walk.  His personal philosophy for ministry is: "To add value to lives by exposing them to Jesus Christ through God's Word"

He loves all parts of ministry, but especially excels in, and enjoys, the personal, one-on-one of individual discipleship.

Assistant to the Pastor

By God's grace, Curt Laughlin became a new creature in Jesus Christ at the age of 26.  The Lord gave him the blessing and enjoyment of having a good Pastor and friend to labor with as an Assistant Pastor in Eau Claire, WI, for the past 20 years.

Now, here at Grace Baptist Church, my family and I have been remarkably refreshed and blessed by this body of believers.  My desire for myself and the church is that we would continually grow in our fellowship with Jesus Christ, and our love towards God, always looking to the cross of reconciliation and the message of peace through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

Associate Pastor

Tyler Ewer joined God’s family when He trusted on Christ to save him from his sins as a young child. Thus began a walk in Him that has spanned 40 years. Tyler was blessed to pastor in Stanley, WI for the past 13 years and, along with his family, is excited to be a part of what God is doing at Grace. Tyler’s passion, both in leading his family and with the fellowship at Grace, is to know, love and live God in Christ by nurturing a relationship with Him and growing in Him through His Word.
