A quote Mr. Scherer notably lives by is Romans 12. He states, “ This scripture talks about offering your life as a sacrifice that is pleasing to God, which is what I try to do every day. It also talks about how we all have gifts given to us by the grace of God and we should all use those gifts to show the love of God to the world around us.”

For his college education, he attended Concordia – St.Paul. There he received his undergrad, and then went on to receive his graduate degree at Bethel University.
