After serving with Whitestone Mennonite Church as a licensed pastor of outreach since 2012, Ron Moyo was ordained as a minister of the gospel on May 22, 2016 at the church’s facility in Hesston, Kansas. This credential was given upon the recommendation of the Ministerial Leadership Commission of South Central Mennonite Conference; an area conference of Mennonite Church USA. Ron’s calling and gifts in ministry were recognised and celebrated by friends, family, pastors, congregation members, and conference leaders in a service held Sunday afternoon.
Ron is a 2012 graduate of the Hesston College Pastoral Ministries program and worked as a youth pastor and ministry administrator in Zimbabwe. Ron’s warm heart and gentle smile make everyone he meets feel welcome. Ron and his wife Sue live in North Newton and have two children, Lincoln and Linda.
In recent Sundays 17 persons have been baptized at the three Journey Campuses. Eleven were baptized at Journey McPherson including adults, college students and youth. Four were baptized at South Hutchinson and two at the Yoder campus. McPherson adults baptized include persons with little or no Bible knowledge or church since childhood. Two men’s and 3 women’s study and discipleship groups are meeting along with discipleship mentoring and a missional community. After 3.5 years Journey McPherson attendance has averaged 173 since Christmas. Jim Ostlund is pastor. Pray for their search for an associate to help with worship.
