Chad Delaney - Senior Pastor 

Our Lead Minister, Rev. Chad Delaney, has been the pastor at Mantua Center Christian Church since August 2008. He was born and raised in the Disciples of Christ tradition, growing up at the First Christian Church of Stow, OH.  He has a wonderful and supportive wife, Christin, who teaches Kindergarten at Crestwood and involves herself in many ways in the church and community.   They live in Hiram with their three growing kids--C.J., Josh, and Avery.  

Chad and Christin both graduated from Hiram College in 2002. Chad majored in Religious Studies and Christin in Early Childhood Education. Chad received his Masters of Divinity at Vanderbilt Divinity School in Nashville, TN and was ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in June 2005 at his home church.

Len Malotte - Associate Pastor, Spiritual Development

Pastor Len Malotte is one of our Associate Ministers. His focus is on spiritual development, but he also preaches from time to time, moderates one of the adult Sunday School classes, does hospital and shut-in visitation, and officiates at weddings and funerals among other duties.
Len grew up as a PK (preacher’s kid), but then he spent 25 years estranged from the church until... that is, he “found” the loving family of fellow journeyers at MCCC. His experiences both in and out of the church have taught him that questions and doubts are essential to faith. “That’s why they call it ‘faith’ and not ‘certainty,’” he says. He is also extremely grateful to the faith family at “the Center” for their encouragement and their support of his call to ministry.
Like Pastor Chad and Pastor Laurie, Pastor Len is a Hiram College grad. He and his wife of 40 years, Tina have three grown daughters and seven grandchildren. He is a full-time employee of the Lubrizol Corp. in Wickliffe, Ohio, and in his spare time he likes reading, music of all kinds, golfing, cooking, fishing, cheering on the Cleveland and Ohio State sports teams, and of course, spending time with his grandkids.
