Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Mennonite Conference
Executive Conference Minister
We are excited to announce that Eric Massanari has accepted the call to serve as our next ECM, beginning November 1st! Eric, along with his spouse, Yolanda Kauffman, served as Caretakers at Drift Creek Camp from 1994-1996, and Yolanda spent formative years at Portland Mennonite Church. For the past nine years, Eric has been serving as Chaplain at Kidron Bethel Village in North Newton, KS and he has been a practicing Spiritual Director since 2006. Previously, he spent fourteen years as Lead Pastor at Shalom Mennonite Church in Newton, KS. Our search team and the PNMC board are convinced that his breadth of experience complements his gentle presence and deep conviction and these things will serve him well in the role of ECM. We ask that you join us in celebrating this news, and hold Eric and his family in prayer as they begin to make this transition.
