My name is Robert Wengerd and I'm the pastor of the North Lima Mennonite Church. I've been serving this congregation for over twenty-four years. Prior to that I served a Mennonite church in central Ohio for over ten years.
Life has been an interesting journey. Earning a bachelor's degree in business administration and having worked in a bank for a number of years, I assumed that my life-time career would be in the business world. I, however, experienced a growing desire to serve the Lord and subsequently received a clear call to pastoral ministry.
I've been happily married for over 40 years. My wife, Dianne, taught school for over 30 years, was a mentor to newer teachers, and is now retired. My daughter is married, lives in the local area, and teaches special needs students. We are enjoying our two grand-daughters.
It's been a delight to be part of the church at North Lima. We've experienced God in our midst in so many ways. I'm reminded again and again that our God is an awesome God!
Whether you've been a follower of Jesus for many years or whether you are just now exploring the Christian faith, I'm sure that you too can grow spiritually in the context of this congregation.
