Velma Swartz — Pastor of Senior Ministries

Following “the light in front of me” has been my mantra the last several years. Serving here at Waterford Mennonite Church as Pastor of Senior Ministries has truly been an exercise of following the light. Relating to this group is inspiration, and I’m delighted be part of their lives. Following that light has also led me to classes at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary in pursuing the spiritual formation track and also acquiring five units of Clinical Pastoral Education. Working as a chaplain at Greencroft Healthcare for the past four and a half years was also an exercise in following the light on a path that was truly gift for me. We, Sheldon and I, have been abundantly blessed with four married children and ten grandchildren. Our children are scattered around the world. We love to visit them and be part of their lives.
