Tina Schmidt is the Director of Philanthropic Relations for ZOE Helps, a nonprofit organization that empowers the world’s most vulnerable children to become fully self-sufficient, find the hope of Jesus Christ and never need charity again.

Tina has over 14 years of nonprofit and fundraising experience.  In 2009, she began a five-year journey as co-founder of an orphanage home in Sierra Leone.  Her time with the organization became the most transformational for the calling Tina believes God has brought her to.

Tina has now taken all of her work and education, both literal and experiential, to bring the most effective empowerment program through the love of Jesus Christ to communities in need and the world’s most vulnerable children.

Tina currently resides in Sartell, MN with her husband and 5 children, 3 who were adopted from Sierra Leone.
