Pastor Phil and Roberta Schrock

 

On a recent trip to Bellingham, Washington, where I visited my daughter and family, I had the opportunity to take a side trip down to Albany, Oregon. I was sent there by Fellowship of Christian Farmers Executive Director Dennis Schlagel to get the story of Phil Schrock, a farmer from Iowa. The meeting was set for December 15th at Fairview Mennonite Church in Albany, Oregon.

 

 

It just so happened that the church was performing their Christmas Pageant that night, so it was a great night to make the contact.

call on my life into the ministry as a teenager even though I did not actually enter the ministry until I was 45. Throughout the years God continued to affirm that call on my life and mature me in my walk with Him. Spent several terms at Rosedale Bible College in Irwin, Ohio in the late 70’s, where I met my wife Roberta. Many things have influenced the direction of my life towards pastoring, including FCFI mission trips to Mexico, coaching basketball at junior high and high school level for 12 years, youth ministry for 8 years in youth sponsor, and youth pastor positions.”

Phil entered the ministry at Fairview Mennonite Church, in Kalona, Iowa, in 2002. He coached junior high and high school basketball from 1992 to 2004, which contributed to his preparation for youth ministry. While ministering at Fairview, Phil continued farming until he was called to serve in Albany, Oregon, at the Fairview Mennonite Church there. Coincidence? No.

This is the church where his wife, Roberta, grew up. Phil was approached by the Fairview Mennonite Church in Albany through the contact of Roberta, where her family still attends. This process began in 2008, and by August 2009, they moved to Oregon, where Phil joined Fairview Mennonite Church as an associate pastor, including youth pastor duties. A few months later, he sold his farm equipment, although still owns the farmland. Phil’s nephews currently farm the land.

On January 1, 2012, Phil assumed the role of senior pastor, switching positions with the current senior pastor, in preparation for his retirement. Truly, Phil was

following God’s call to Albany, Oregon, to replace their senior pastor, in the familiar setting of his wife, Roberta’s church. With harvesting experience, Pastor Phil Schrock is now harvesting souls for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Sheila and Blaine have a son born May, 2012. Both of them are involved with We Care Prison Ministries. Michelle and Robert are expecting in May and work at Atmore Christian School. They are also involved in ministry to the children in their neighborhood. Tyler is in his final year at Troy University in Troy, Alabama majoring in mathematics.
