LSC staff

  • Pat Malloy

    Lead Pastor

    Pat Malloy is the Lead Pastor at Living Stones Church.  In 2019 he and his family - wife Angela and kids Reegan, Makayla, Caidence and Josiah - decided to call LSC home! They immediately fell in love with the people here at LSC. They saw this as a church where you can just be real and not have to fake it. (It is crazy how often we hear this from others!) Pat also said “We love the mission and vision of Living Stones. The love and care for this community and neighborhood is infections and exciting!” 

    The Malloys hail from Milwaukee Wisconsin … which is obvious if you talk sports with Pat. Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Badgers, Milwaukee Brewers are his teams. Obviously we didn’t hire him for his taste in sport teams!😉 Pat’s education background is in Elementary Education where he taught in the public school system in Milwaukee prior to being called to ministry. He served as a Children’s Pastor and then Associate Pastor for eleven years. We asked Pat what brings him the most joy from serving in ministry and he shared, “I love seeing people experience Jesus and the life change that he can bring. There is nothing as rewarding as sharing the truth about who Jesus is and watching people embrace that truth and allow him to change and impact their lives. It is a true joy to hear people’s stories, engage in relationship and walk through life with them.” 

    Some fun and interesting facts about Pat …. * He dislikes hot liquids - coffee, tea, soup, hot chocolate, etc. * He played hurling (not curling, but hurling) with the Milwaukee Hurling Club. * His favorite vacation spots would have to include mountains or national parks - Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountains, etc. 

    When he’s not working you will probably find Pat playing cards or board games with his family, or spending time outside with them. He loves to go for hikes and walks, fishing and sitting by the fire.  The adventurous side of Pat loves backpacking. He believes people would describe him as caring, gracious and genuine. Three words he used to describe himself - curious, encouraging and competitive. 

    Romans 5:8 is his favorite scripture: “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” 


    Director of Ministries

    Meredith Waltman has been attending Living Stones Church for 12 years now. What kept her coming back for more at LSC is still true today … Meredith loves the “come as you are” atmosphere. She says, “you realize quickly that you don’t have to have it all together to belong here because we’re all on a journey of focusing on and becoming more like Jesus.” In 2011 Meredith helped bring the Recess Day Camp, serving the children in our neighborhood, to a reality and in 2013 became a permeant fixture as LSC Staff. 

    As Director of Ministries Meredith shares that the best part of her position is “getting to walk alongside people."  From working in Early Childhood Education, Children’s ministry, Student ministry, and now with adults Meredith sees the Kingdom value in investing in the next generation! 

    Meredith is married to Jim (also serving on staff at LSC) and they have a daughter, 7 year old Coraline. As a family they love to spend time together outside exploring nature and playing games and make-believe. 2020 was the year the Waltman’s decided to start a small homestead project which included a vegetable garden and 6 chickens. Other outdoorsy things Meredith loves to do are kayak, hike and sit around a campfire. 

    A few other interesting facts about our Director of Ministries … She LOVES coffee and cannot function without it! She’s also very intrigued with the human anatomy, “specifically how God formed us and created all of these unique features and functions of the human body.” She is fascinated by human hearts, lungs and brains, so much so, that she has an anatomical heart tattooed on her shoulder. Meredith loves to create and craft in her free time and seeks out projects that use many different kinds of media … like cement and resin. Meredith believes others would describe her as creative, hyper and outgoing. Finding three words she would use to describe herself wasn’t easy, but after much prodding she said, “sarcastic, caffeinated, creative.” 

    Ephesians 3:17-19 is Meredith’s favorite scripture … “May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love; and may you be able to feel and understand, as all God’s children should, how long, how wide, how deep, and how high his love really is.”

  • Jenn Paul

    Director of Children's Ministry

    Jenn has been the LSC Director of Children's Ministries since Jan. 2017. She began attending LSC about 8 years ago and she and her husband Chris Paul were married at LSC in 2015! Jenn and Chris share 3 daughters - Libby 22; Colleen 17; Gabby 15. 

    With a background in Early Childhood Education from IUSB, Jenn says it brings her great joy when “watching a kid ‘get it’ when we’re doing a lesson or hearing from parents that the kids are singing songs they learned or repeating bible verses from the Sunday teachings!” Having Kids Classes shut down for nearly 7 months this year was difficult for Jenn because one of her favorite things about her position is building relationships with the children and her volunteer team each week. She’s pretty excited to have kids joining classes - in person - again on Sundays! 

    Jenn believes if people had to describe her in 3 words they’d chose loyal, generous and caring. In describing herself in 3 words she offered, “Work. In. Progress!” Aren’t we all?!?! Many people don’t know that Jenn began taking dance classes at the age of 30 and trained in ballet, jazz, tap and Polynesian. During the 10 years of lessons she also competed in several dance competitions! When asked about some of her favorites, she shared *Favorite Foods - tacos! *Favorite sports/teams - meh! *Favorite vacation spots - anyplace with an ocean or beach or Tennessee *Favorite animals - elephants, giraffes, hippos and any and al primates (noticing she didn’t include her dog Gus! He might need some therapy soon!) Jenn also loves to read, crochet, binge watch TV shows with Chris and visit used book stores (another fun fact - she loves the smell of old books!) 

    As she has a tattoo to prove it, her favorite scripture is Philippines 4:6-7 - “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

  • Jim Waltman

    Director of Worship & creative Arts

    Jim Waltman has served on the LSC staff since 2018, but at that point had already been a regular fixture to the worship band since he and his wife, Meredith, began attending in 2010. With the Waltman’s both working on staff, their 7 year old daughter, Cora, who sometimes thinks she owns the place. (We see great leadership skills in her future 😂). For Jim, the main thing that kept him coming back for more at LSC was the PEOPLE and their willingness to serve. He said, “it’s such a unique makeup or cross-section of people. LSC is literally made up of all walks of life, and we love the diversity.”

    Jim hales from his hometown of Lebanon, Indiana and he wants to be sure you pronounce it correctly … Leba “NON”, not Leba “nin” or Lebtucky. After moving to the area and serving in the USAF National Guard, he worked towards his degree in Liberal Arts from Bethel University with a focus on Psychology and History. But music has always been such an important part of Jim’s life. When describing the joy he receives from serving on staff he states, “Music is an extension of me, it is like breathing, so to be able to use that to lead the congregation in worship is a wonderful thing. I love it when the entire congregation comes together as one on a song, and we all lift our voices together in praise. Feeling that spirit is an amazing thing.”

    If you know just one thing about Jim, it might be his passion for pizza, pizza, and pizza ! He believes it should be it’s own food group. Jim has other likes also, such as ancient history, humpback whales and anything historical like antiques. If you don’t know Jim very well, you might not realize how sarcastic he can be. He said, “this has gotten me into trouble before. People don’t realize I’m joking and think I’m either a jerk or not the smartest guy!” When he’s not at LSC you might find Jim training in MMA/kickboxing, riding his green John Deere tractor and living his best life with his family. Jim thinks people would probably describe him as hairy, unique and maybe slightly crazy, but describes himself as joyful, peaceful and unique.

    Philippians 4: 10-13 is Jim’s favorite scripture to go to when things are tough or things seem to not being going the way he’d hoped. “I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”


    Director of Student Ministries

    Kyle began his journey on the LSC staff in 2021 as our Director of Student Ministries.  But Kyle has always been involved with Student Ministry in one way or another, at LSC alone he served as a weekly volunteer with our Middle School Students since 2018.  Kyle is originally from Anderson, IN and that is where he attended & graduated from Anderson University with a degree in Business Management.  He moved up to South Bend in 2012 and met Lacey (his wife) in 2017.  Together they started attending LSC in 2018.  "Lacey and I enjoy being a part of Living Stones because of the community involvement.  It is one thing to go to church, but to be the church to the community is what it is all about."  They got married in 2020 (yes, during the pandemic) and look to continue to grow in their faith and as a family.  

    Kyle is passionate to see Students grow in their faith.  He believes each student has a purpose in this world and God has created them to make a difference even at a young age.  

    When Kyle isn't hanging with students you can find him cheering on his favorite teams the Cubs (there is always next year) and the Green Bay Packers (Go Pack Go!).  The Stork household has a fun rival during football season when the Packers play the Bears - Lacey's favorite team.  We hear things can be a bit tense during that game. When he isn't in front of the TV awaiting his favorite teams to play, he enjoys going outside for hikes and likes to bike. 

    Ephesians 2:10 is one of Kyle's favorite Bible verses which says, "For we are God's masterpiece.  He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."
