Isaac Pic

My name is Isaac Schmidt and I’m a recent graduate from Iowa State University with a bachelor’s degree in Advertising and a minor in Speech Communication. I currently help lead worship at The Salt Company and Cornerstone’s Sunday services and am on the Anthem team.

I was born in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, lived there for an exhilarating two weeks, and moved to Treynor, Iowa, where I grew up on a farm just outside of town. I was raised by two amazing parents who love Christ and love me. My brothers and I grew up in the church always knowing and believing that Jesus died for our sins but not really understanding the weight of what that meant for our lives. It wasn’t until coming to Iowa State and getting plugged into The Salt Company that God began to really open my eyes to the depth of my sin and the overflowing richness of His mercy and I began to actively seek and live my life for Him.

I grew up with my mom playing piano but being the rebellious young gent that I was, I resisted lessons as fervently as possible. I started playing trumpet in 5th grade and continued all through high school. I bought an acoustic guitar (and a mandolin, I like to collect instruments) my sophomore year of high school and started learning as many song as I could. It wasn’t till my sophomore year of college that I really got involved with worship at Freshman Group and The Salt Company. I have really enjoyed being a part of these ministries and am excited for what God has yet to teach me through serving here. I have a passion to see God’s name glorified in people’s lives and am so thankful to have the privilege of leading His people corporately in worship.

My name is Joshua Kerns and I am the D6 Worship Intern. I primarily serve on weekends at D6. I am a senior in Mechanical Engineering at Iowa State. I was blessed with wonderful parents who taught me the fear and love of the Lord and was part of a great bible believing church growing up and given many opportunities to grow and serve.

God captivated my heart in high school through a series of trials.  I am so thankful for a Savior who would give his life for a sinner like me.  He gave me a purpose and hope.  It was then that He put a guitar in my hands and I began leading worship on a regular basis at youth group and on Sunday mornings.  My junior summer I began working at Hidden Acres Christian Center. I learned so much about leading and teaching the campers about Jesus.  I also lead worship on a daily basis.

I have been attending Cornerstone since beginning college.  I had heard of the  Salt Company from attending Cornerstone. I got plugged into Freshmen Group, which gave me an awesome opportunity to develop relationships with those who have taught me so much through the years. I got involved with the Freshmen Group worship team and eventually became a coordinator for the worship team. I was blessed with leading freshmen group worship for two years.  Salt Company also gave me the opportunity to lead a connection group for two years, which was a time where I was able to grow and serve. God taught me so much about servant leadership and humility through the guys that had been involved with my group.

I have been greatly blessed to meet my fiancée Callie McComas through Salt Company and we are super excited to grow in our faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ together.  We will be married on June 1, 2013.

I have been given a great joy by being able to serve kids once again. A child’s desire to worship God is contagious and I am so blessed to be a part of D6 Weekends Leading worship.
