Developing men and women into an army for Jesus

The War Counsel was formed to give back and to take back. Ed Schmit experienced a dramatic life change when he went all-in for Jesus and was counseled by many great men. It is now his turn to help raise leaders to learn, teach and extend the kingdom of God.

We are focused on helping men love and serve their wives, lead their families, and create a serving culture at home, in the workplace, and community. We seek to see marriages saved with husbands and wives growing in oneness. We disciple youth in Jesus, train them in leadership, and equip them to teach others.
