We the delegates of Ohio Mennonite Conference wish to convey our deepest respect and appreciation to Ralph Reinford and Cliff Brubaker for faithfully and gracefully carrying heavy responsibilities for the good of the Conference.  We acknowledge that we have not always appreciated nor affirmed them nor recognized the burdens they have carried on our behalf.  We pledge our continued prayers and support to them during the transitions to come.  We ask God to bless and reward these two servants with abundant peace and joy.

Delegates approved this resolution at the 2018 Annual Conference Assembly at Bluffton
University on Saturday, March 10.
