The Ohio Conference Leadership Team and the Ministry Development Team are pleased to announce the appointment of Tony Doehrmann as the new regional pastor covering the western half of Ohio Conference. He will begin his work with the Conference on Oct. 1.

Tony served as pastor of Jubilee Mennonite Church in Bellefontaine from 2008 until the end of 2017. During that time, he also served as a chaplain of the local hospital, a clergy representative of the Logan County Critical Incident Stress Management Team and a hospice volunteer.

Tony is a graduate of Hesston College’s Pastoral Ministries program and has also participated in spiritual direction training at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary in Elkhart, Indiana. Prior to experiencing his call to pastoral ministry, he worked in manufacturing and administration at Sauder Woodworking Company in Archbold for 20 years. Tony was a member of Lockport Mennonite Church in Stryker where he served as an elder, church chair and in several other positions.

Those who know Tony best describe him as a great listener who is able to help individuals and groups discern the Holy Spirit’s leading. Since ending his time at Jubilee Mennonite Church, he and his wife, Rhonda, have built a new home and moved to Pettisville to be closer to their grandchildren.
