The Ohio Conference Ministry Development Team is encouraging Conference congregations to send pastors and their spouses to the Ohio Conference Pastor-Spouse Retreat, which will take place Nov. 8-10 at the Mohican State Park Lodge. Because of underwriting by two sponsors, Mennonite Mutual Insurance and Ohio Mennonite Women, the cost of this retreat is only $220 for the first 30 couples who register. The cost is $390 per couple for all others attending. For more information about this retreat, please see the cover letter and retreat brochure.
