This year we added a number of new staff to our team. They are all phenomenal young adults and spiritual mentors to our students.
Brianna Maust is our new Elementary Assistant. Last year, Brianna served as a short-term missionary with the YES program of Eastern Mennonite Missions. She felt the call to Baltimore again and returned to us this year as full-time staff. We are elated to have her return and share her heart for God with our students.
Robert Weaver is our new Middle School Assistant. Robert is an alumnus of MCCS and has studied for the past two years at Eastern Mennonite University. Robert brings many skills to us in photography, drama, and his thorough knowledge of our curriculum. He is a wonderful addition to our staff team.
Tobias Stoner is our new High School Assistant. Originally from South Bend, Indiana, he became connected to us through North Baltimore Mennonite Church. Tobias studied at Princeton for two years , then decided to devote this year to urban ministry. He comes to us with a vast knowledge of history, science and math assisting our high school students in these subjects. Tobias is also a talented musician and singer. We are grateful for the divine connection that led him to MCCS.
Lauren McGee is our YES/GO intern from Eastern Mennonite Missions. She is on a 9-month assignment here in Baltimore. She is originally from Colorado. She has a heart for youth and for seeing students growspiritually. She is working primarily with the Elementary and Middle School classrooms. Please keep Lauren in prayer as she is building relationships in our school community and is becoming accustomed to city life and urban ministry.
We are truly blessed to have the new staff. This year we have three male staff on our team. Unfortunately, many of our students do not have positive male role models in their lives. We are grateful to have Godly and nurturing male staff who serve as mentors to our male and female students, giving them a fuller picture of biblical manhood.
