NILES — John Schindler, gospel singer, will be in concert at First Baptist Church, 1446 E. Main St., Niles, at 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7.

Schindler grew up in Liberia, West Africa, a son of missionary parents.  He has often

A graduate of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Taylor University, Schindler served as a church-planting pastor in Wisconsin. During his seminary training, he taught one year as a short-term missionary with SIM International at the Evangelical Church of West Africa Bible College in Kagoro, Nigeria.

He said his heart’s desire is to see people from all backgrounds come to faith in Christ.
