At 96 years young, Gene Schmid is truly a blessing to us at West View Baptist. Gene is a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer having served 20 years on active duty from 1943 to 1963. He attended seminary in Kentucky and his first pastorate was at West View Baptist in the late 60s and early 70s. Gene and his wife Allene served together at numerous churches where Gene pastored and Allene taught children's Sunday School and played piano or organ. Allene passed away May 8, 2012.
Throughout Gene's multiple pastorates one thing has resonated in his over 50 years of professional ministry, the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
