Staff are grateful for the fall retreat this past week.
We give thanks for transitional pastors working in various settings across conference. The support group met at the conference office on September 15 and will meet again in December.
We are grateful for North Goshen Mennonite’s hosting of a Dove’s Nest event last month, to help congregations think about sexual abuse and policies that keep all parties safe.
We give thanks for the many years of ministry given by Mario Bustos, who retired in August. Mario served two congregations in IN-MI Conference, Hudson Lake and Valparaiso. He also served on various leadership groups, including Executive Committee and Advisory Council.
We are also grateful to God for new young leaders coming into conference: Naomi Yoder (East Goshen) and Katie Misz (Waterford).
