Mennonite Church USA has hired Warren Yoder as director of constituent engagement. In this new position, Yoder will help the denomination connect churches, organizations and individuals.

“Warren comes with a vast amount of experience working for nonprofits,” said Iris de León-Hartshorn, associate executive director of operations. “I believe he will do a great job communicating with our constituency about the work MC USA is doing, as well as listening to their concerns and receiving feedback about what we are doing well.”

A member of Open Door Mennonite Church in Jackson, Miss., Yoder has a master of social work degree from Temple University. Previously, he was executive director of two faith-based nonprofits relating to community services and family advocacy in Mississippi. He brings experience leading inclusive development programs that engaged supporters from diverse racial and religious backgrounds.

“Constituency engagement is not only a responsibility, it is also a tremendous personal gift,” Yoder said. “People are willing to share their heart, tell me what they love and plan their unique engagement with the work of the church. I am deeply grateful for that blessing every time someone shares their story.”
