Dec. 18 is the deadline to register for the Ohio Conference Pastor-Elder Retreat. The retreat, which will be offered twice during February 2016, will focus on the theme “Practicing Right Relationship.” Lonnie Yoder, professor of pastoral care at Eastern Mennonite Seminary in Harrisonburg, Va., will be the input speaker. The cost for this retreat is only $50 per person.

The focus will be on helping pastor-elder teams to develop four areas of healthy relationship building — self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management. Elder teams will be given time to meet together to process the input received.

The pastor-elder retreat will be held Feb. 5-6 at Widewater Retreat Center in Liberty Center, Ohio, and also Feb. 19-20 at Camp Buckeye in Beach City, Ohio.  Please see for links to online registration and a brochure with more information.
