Bryan Schneider-Thomas (he/him) has been the pastor of Peace Lutheran Church in Sparta since 2009 and served as a pastor in West Michigan since 1995. For him Plainsong is a place where the conversation about faith combines with conversations about food and environment. His first experience at Plainsong was planting heirloom wheat. Working along side numerous other volunteers while a quartet played folk music remains one of his fondest memories. Bryan hopes to share the experience of Plainsong Farm with an expanding group of people and widen the circle for the conversation of how environment, food, and faith influence each other.
