Nichole Schreiber – Lead Pastor
Nichole and her husband Joel worked in college ministry with Chi Alpha Campus Ministries for over 10 years. Both Joel and Nichole hold ordained credentials with the Assemblies of God. Nichole earned her undergraduate degree at Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield, MO. Currently Joel directs the Edinboro University Chi Alpha where a thriving ministry of 200 students invades the campus with the message of the gospel.
Originally from Wattsburg, PA, Nichole joined the staff at Erie First as the Executive Pastor of Ministries in October 2016, after previously serving on staff at another church as well as previously being a member of Erie First’s preaching team under Pastor Jack Risner. She was named Interim Lead Pastor after Pastor Jack’s departure in October 2016, and was confirmed as Lead Pastor by the Erie First congregation in February 2017.
They have three rambunctious, hilarious, lovely girls: Cecily, Haley and Mercy. They like to watch The Office and Shark Tank. Joel loves to be outdoors and Nichole blogs in her spare time. They are out to spend their whole lives for Jesus in every way possible.
