George and Linda are native Pennsylvanians the Lord led far and wide in ministry. George grew up in Altoona, Linda in Havertown.  They met at Lancaster Bible College in June of 1975, married in December 1978, graduated together in May 1979, and began serving at Colebrookdale Chapel (Boyertown) in September 1979. The past 38 years of ministry involved all aspects of local church ministry, raising three children, doing tribal evangelism and church planting in Ecuador, serving as the Global Ministry Director of Liebenzell Mission USA, and planting MACC (now Harvest Bible Chapel) in Reading, PA. They have served in Canada, Ecuador, Colombia, Nigeria, Germany, Palau, Yap, Chuuk, Guam and a few other places.

 George and Linda love to spend time with people and to spend time in nature. Gardening, snorkeling, and hiking are favorite pastimes. They are lifetime learners who are always open to new adventures.  A mission trip to Ecuador in March 2018 could be an opportunity for you to share an adventure with them! Ministry has always been a team effort. They are excited to serve the people of Salem. If there is some way they can serve you, or help you to serve others, please get in touch with them. Oh, and best of all, they are Baba and Lala to Elsie, Griffin, and Ada Reese!






Pastor Kevin Schultz
Executive Pastor

Kevin and his wife, Beth, have strong roots here at Salem. Both graduated from Salem Christian School in the 80's. Beth taught elementary school at Salem until 2021 when she gave up her teaching position to pursue her passions in gardening and hosting guests at their 27-acre farm. The Schultz farm has been in the family since 1766 and has been the site of many Salem events throughout the years including our annual baptism service, countless hayrides, field trips and fall festivals.

Kevin came on staff at Salem Bible Church in 1992. After serving for over a decade as youth pastor, coach and athletic director for SCS, Kevin shifted roles within our church staff and moved into the position of Executive Pastor. Utilizing his gifts of administration and leadership, he oversees our ministries of Worship, Safety, Tech, Men's and Connection. Kevin received his bachelor's in Bible from Cairn University and his MDIV from Biblical Seminary.

Kevin and Beth have a daughter who is married to an active duty Army soldier and son who works in computer technology while serving in many areas here at Salem. Kevin and Beth find great fulfillment in being used to bring people to a saving knowledge of Christ and helping them grow in their relationship with God.
