Leaders at our Church

Todd and Marita Scholtz have been the pastors of WAMC since February of 2008.They love the church here and desire to see Wilkens Avenue Mennonite Church take its place in shining brightly in this community to lift up the Name of Jesus Christ and to carry out His work in this neighborhood and city.

Danny and Maria Ray became Assistant Pastors at WAMC in May of 2023.  Before that they were long-time youth leaders, dedicating themselves to discipling the next generation here in Baltimore City.

Jermaine Shannon became an Assistant Pastor at WAMC in 2024.  He has served in youth ministry and most recently has been an appreciated part of our Pulpit Ministry.

The pastors are supported in their leadership by a Leadership Team which is made up of persons who hold these positions:  Senior Advisor, Facilities Chairperson, Treasurer, Christian Education Coordinator, Care Group Coordinator, and Youth Coordinator.  The Pastors and Leadership Team are responsible to Bishop Glenn Kauffman, Bishop of the Baltimore-Washington District of the Lancaster Mennonite Conference.


Wilkens Avenue Mennonite Church is filled with many others who lead the various programs and ministries of the church.  They serve the Lord sacrificially and whole-heartedly.We are very grateful to all who serve in our congregation.
