In this episode of the Ohio Conference Cast, Ervin Stutzman, executive director of Mennonite Church USA, has a challenge for the Ohio Conference: “Stretch yourself a bit by hanging around with people sometimes who have a different perspective than you. You don’t have to be like them. You don’t have to make your church like theirs, but expect that there’ll be other people who have similar attitudes about your congregation.”

Ohio Conference Cast host Thomas Dunn and Marilyn Rossiter, his special co-host for this episode, talk with Ervin about a variety of topics, including leadership, the upcoming Future Church Summit, the role of a national conference, and working and living with people who might not be our first choice.
