Interim Pastor -
Nelson Yoder

Pastor

Welcome to Frazer Mennonite Church.  If you are new to the church or just curious, you are like me.  In October 2017, I began serving a one year term as an interim pastor while the congregation is in a pastoral search.   I have found that the congregation lives out their vision to be welcoming, connecting, and healing.  On this website you will see the many ways people engage God in worship and each other in support and care. 

Before coming to Frazer Mennonite Church I served as associate pastor for fifteen years in two different congregations.   I have been and continue to work bi-vocationally, serving the church and also working as an outpatient mental health therapist in Lancaster County.  My wife and I have three grown children, all of whom are married, and we are delighted to have three grandchildren.  Activities which energize me include biking, fishing, birding, and gardening in the small wood lot around our home. 

I invite you to come and experience the love and care of God here at Frazer Mennonite Church.
