About Stan and Cheryl Schuermann



Stan: I grew up in the 50s and 60s and, for better or worse, am a product of those decades. Like most in my generation, my parents raised me under the guidance of Dr. Spock. Not the Vulcan Spock with pointed ears, but Dr. Benjamin Spock, the pediatrician who had written the most popular book on parenting at the time.

Guided by John Lennon and many others, we ushered in a revolution of social change. R.C. Sproul would later comment, “Already the social historians are saying the revolution that took place in the decade of the 1960s in America was far more reaching and more significant and had a greater effect on changing our culture and our way of life than the revolution of the 18th Century … all the changes that came to pass were done in the name of liberty … and all were promises of freedom.”

For two decades, along with my wife, Cheryl, and other mentor couples, I have taught a remarkable group of young parents who meet in our local church. I usually teach theology and bring them encouragement from John Calvin, Charles Spurgeon, and several contemporary theologians, such as R.C. Sproul, Alistair Begg, Tim Keller, and Douglas Wilson. The class is always ready to engage the topic most often on their minds–parenting.

In 2014, I retired from a professional career in the health industry to devote more time to ministry and family. In addition to raising four godly men and running our home masterfully, Cheryl is an education consultant, staff development trainer, and author. With grown sons, their lovely wives, and thirteen grandchildren, life is rich and full.
