Neil Amstutz

Pastoral Team Leader

I am energized when I see God’s people locally living out their part of God’s work in the world. I’ve been blessed to pastor at Waterford since 2005. Previously I was pastor at First Mennonite Church, McPherson, Kan. Graduating from Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary in 1998 with an M.Div. degree, I earlier completed studies at Hesston College in 1984 and Goshen College (social work) in 1989. My Christian service experiences over the years in Bolivia; San Antonio, Texas; and Egypt have enlarged my view of the world and of the rich diversity within God’s church. Besides various sports, I enjoy singing, playing guitar and keeping my Spanish and Arabic vocabulary from getting rusty. My wife Janette and I consider our greatest blessings to be our three young adult children, even as we adjust to seeing them much less in our empty nest.
