About Us

John & Pat Schroeder


Ministering in the Fargo-Moorhead area for over 40 years, Brookdale Baptist Church is the product of the church planting efforts of Pastor and Mrs. John Schroder and their burden for the people of this community.




Biblical Values

Brookdale stands without apology upon the fundamental truths of God’s Word. We believe that the Bible has all the answers for life. It’s truths, practically and simply taught, can provide genuine stability in the turmoil of the 21st century (2 Peter 1:3).

We believe that the church ought to be a family, where members sincerely care for each other and the needs of others. We want our ministry to be Biblically balanced, people focused, and missions minded. We are striving to be a church family that is making a difference for Christ across our community and around the world.
