About our Pastor
Pastor Arthur Michael Schneider III has been in the Presbyterian ministry since 1966. His father was a Presbyterian pastor for over 60 years. He is a graduate of Belhaven College in Jackson, MS (1963), and Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA (1966). He has served pastorates in Williamston, S.C. (PCUS); Alexandria, LA (PCUS and PCA); Jackson, MS (PCA); and now Valparaiso, FL (Providence National Presbytery and Confederation of Reformed Evangelical Churches). Born in New Orleans, he grew up in Pascagoula, MS. He was married in 1967 to Judy Knox from Moultrie, GA, a descendent of John Knox’s family. The Schneiders have three grown children, John Knox Schneider; Beth (Mrs. Scott) Pruitt; and Amy (Mrs. Chris) Nix. Pastor Schneider was baptized in infancy and has had some sense of call to the ministry most of his life, a call that was especially strengthened in college years. He is organizing pastor of Trinity Presbyterian Church and has been pastor here since 1986. He is Vice-President of the Board of Directors of Rocky Bayou Christian School and Presiding Minister of Athanasius Presbytery (CREC) in the Southeastern U.S.
