Amy Nissley Stauffer joined the pastoral staff at Hesston Mennonite in September of 2012.
Amy was born and raised in Williamsburg, Iowa. She appreciates her Iowa roots and her time spent at Iowa Mennonite High School as well as the congregations there that nurtured her spiritually. She furthered her education at the University of Iowa with a degree in Elementary Education specializing in reading. She explored her call to ministry at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, where she completed her Master of Arts in Christian Formation.
Amy is married to Ardell and they have two sons, Max and Graham.
Prior to the call from Hesston Mennonite, she served as associate pastor at Bethel Mennonite Church, Mountain Lake, MN. In her former conference she served on the Congregational Ministries Committee providing resourcing for congregations in different areas of congregation life. She also served on the planning committee for conference Annual Meeting. Being a part of the broader church is a high priority for Amy. She has served for a number of years at MCUSA bi-annual convention as a delegate for both conference and congregation. She was part of a team who planned events for Young Adult Delegates to Assembly (YODA) and most recently has coordinated Children’s Convention.
Amy’s philosophy of ministry is shaped by the understanding that we are formed by spiritual practices from the cradle to the grave. She desires to be a lifelong learner and brings that passion for learning to pastoral ministry.
