JT Schaeffer, hailing from Wichita Falls, Texas, is the oldest of four siblings and has been performing on stages since he was 10 years old. He has taken part in 25+ productions with a local theatre in his city and loved every minute of it. In 2017 he was blessed with the opportunity to attend the Sight and Sound Conservatory, where he studied musical theater and performed in Jonah and Miracle of Christmas. During that time with Sight and Sound, he was introduced to Piercing Word Ministries, through their memorization workshop as part his curriculum. A few months after the conservatory ended, JT was introduced to the IGNITE Piercing Word Internship and he was added to the team!
