Pastor Jay Schug has been serving as lead pastor at Community Fellowship since August 2011. He was saved in 1997 thru the college ministry of Decatur Baptist Church in Decatur, AL. Shortly after being discipled in his home church, Jay realized God's calling to preach. In the College/Career Ministry, Jay began leading a small group study, and also began discipling others. He continued his ministry training thru his home church, studying Discipleship Two, Discipleship Three, Leadership Training, and Sons of the Faith.

He has had the opportunity to participate in foreign mission trips to Belize, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Albania, Zambia, Morocco and India; as well as participate in Discipleship Training seminars with several churches in Alabama.

Jay met his wife Ali while serving together in the College/Career ministry, and they had the privilege of leading that ministry for several years. In 2011, the Lord opened the door for Jay to become lead pastor at Community Fellowship. Jay and Ali have been married for 18 years, and are the parents of Nora (8), and Emery (3).
