Howdy folks! My name is Taylor Schroll. I am a Catholic husband, father to three precious babies, missionary, youth minister, worship leader, speaker, radio/podcast host, and avid gamer and I am thrilled that you have found this website!
I am so passionate about sharing the Joy of the Gospel through my thoughts and actions, most precisely through speaking engagements and leading God’s people in worship! I have been in ministry doing just that for seven years in a variety of roles as a campus minister, youth minister, worship leader and speaker and nothing brings me more joy that seeing people fall deeper in love with Christ and giving their hearts to Him! I have been so very blessed to see Him work in and through me over the years!
I grew up in a Catholic home as a “son of the Church.” As a freshmen high school, I went to a Steubenville Youth Conference in Southern Louisiana. It was then and there that I decided to take all that I had learned intellectually about our Catholic faith and let it touch my heart. I gave my heart, mind and soul to God that day and have been committed to following Him ever since. No matter how many times I have slipped up since then, and believe me it was quite a lot (ask my mom or my wife), God has always been there to catch me, brush me off and push me forward.
I began in ministry during my time at the University of the Incarnate Word. I was in Campus Ministry there and helped co-found a new Catholic ministry called Breathe that is still thriving today. I also had the great honor of joining a fantastic ministry in the San Antonio area called Tongues of Fire and led the worship team for a few years. We had the great opportunity to lead worship for nights of praise, retreats, parish events and the yearly Youth Explosion conference with over 1250 teens!
Upon graduation I married my college sweetheart Samantha. We were very excited to move to Ohio to begin our life together and for me to pursue a longtime dream of mine to attend Franciscan University of Steubenville. Our first year was a whirlwind of school, work, first year of marriage and welcoming our first child, Christopher.
After a year, we moved to my hometown of Lake Jackson, Tx and I began working as the high school youth and young adult minister in my home parish of St. Michael’s. We enjoyed our two years there, surrounded by family and establishing our lives as parents. During this time I also became the music director for St. Mary Star of the Sea in Freeport, Texas. So life kept me pretty busy either at Church or playing with babies 24/7. :)
In the summer of 2015, we knew God was leading our family to something new, but we weren’t sure what. After a time of prayer and discernment, we decided to move to Bryan, Tx to join ABLAZE Ministries as missionaries. I am overjoyed to be working with a group of holy, talented individuals with the same passion for evangelization, catechesis and ministry as I have. My role with ABLAZE is as the Outreach Marketing Director.
