pastoral staff

Lead Pastor | Brad Roth

Brad Roth began serving Whitestone Mennonite Church in 2023. Previously he served congregations in rural Washington, the Andes of Peru, and Moundridge, KS.

Brad grew up on a farm in Illinois, met Jesus when he was a small child and was baptized at sixteen.  He discovered his calling to ministry gradually as he got involved with a little church in Boston.  Brad’s passionate about prayer and teaching the Scriptures.  He loves good and beautiful words, and occasionally he tries to craft a few of his own.  Brad has published two books: God’s Country: Faith, Hope, and the Future of the Rural Church (Herald 2017) and The Hunger Inside: How the Meal Jesus Gave Transforms Lives.  

In his spare time, Brad relishes cooking new recipes, visiting new places, and hanging with his wife and three sons.  

One of Brad’s life verses is: 2 Corinthians 5:14: “The love of Christ urges us on.”  

Wherever you’re at, may the love of Christ light a fire in your heart to follow him!

Pastor of Youth and Faith Formation | Isaac Landis

Isaac began serving at Whitestone in 2011. Previously he served as a Jr. High Youth Pastor in Pennsylvania for more than five years. One doesn’t have that many years in youth ministry without (temporarily) losing kids at amusement parks, spending many sleepless nights in camp bunks, and most importantly, seeing lives changed!

Isaac has a love for the church and a desire to bring the generations together in faith formation. He also loves the genuine questions and curiosity that young people bring. Isaac and his wife, Melissa, have three children: Owen, Max and Anna. They love being part of such a caring faith community, and hope for Whitestone that it is a place people find belonging and are equipped for the mission of God.

Outreach Pastor | Ron Moyo

Ron’s passion is to share the gospel by building relationships that transform peoples’ lives. He says: “I believe in the transformational power of love in those who are disciples of Jesus Christ in all aspects of their lives.” Ron’s prayer for Whitestone is to see the congregation play its role in the community by bringing everyone to the table, sowing seeds of peace and love, and raising children that positively contribute to their communities.

Ron is a 2018 graduate of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS – Elkhart, Ind.). He has worked as the national youth pastor for the Brethren in Christ Church Zimbabwe conference and other nonprofit organizations in Zimbabwe. He has also worked for Mennonite World Conference and Mennonite Economic Development Agency (MEDA). Ron and his wife, Sue, have two young adult children, Lincoln and Linda.
