Therefore, it is important that an updated transcript of completed work in the college, university,
seminary, or institution attended be sent each semester to the secretary of the Ministerial Studies
Secretary. It is the responsibility of the student to see that the secretary receives their transcripts.
If you attend a non-Nazarene institution it will likely require further classes central to the

ordination.
Students who have not sent a transcript or completed two module courses during the year will be
placed on probation. Students who have not sent a transcript or completed any work in the

program.
Current tracks of study include Elder, Elder-New Start, Elder-Chaplaincy, Elder-Compassionate
Ministry, Deacon-Youth Ministry, and Deacon Music.
It is the responsibility of each student to keep the secretary updated when their address, phone
number, or email changes, or if there is a change in their personal status.

meetings, making real decisions, about things that really matter. Allow me to mention the work
of some of these.
First is our Board of Ministry, historically known as Credentials and Studies Boards. These
ministers have tremendous responsibility for the oversight, direction, and decisions regarding the
credentialing of ministers in training across our district. Their work is anything but perfunctory.
We had a heart to heart kind of meeting this year that has really gripped me ever since. The
longer I am in this role, the more I value the education and formation of our upcoming ministers.
There is our District Center Board. We celebrate and enjoy the continuing improvements of our
campground. Our camp has become like the Buick commercials. People come and say,
progress
when what used to be your best is now your worst. This facility has become a resource for many
ministry and service organizations, and increasingly so for our local churches and district
more volunteers here
involved in significant improvements than ever before.
our
Next is the Mission Development Board. These people are passionate and persevering about
starting new churches. These meetings leave me simultaneously drained and energized. With
their organization and leadership we have had fifty of our pastors go through the full three day
training of Churches Planting Churches in the last two years, and another dozen or so have also
completed Church Planting Essentials, and we now have several Master Trainers of our own.
60
Then there is the District Advisory Board. In addition to the dozens of responsibilities listed in
the Manual l these thoughtful leaders provide counsel, feedback, and encouragement to me. This
year we added the ReVision Team. What an energetic, synergistic, thinking group! They have
been tasked with helping our existing churches to fulfill the mission to which God has called
them. We will come back to this matter in a few minutes.
There are our Trustees to Mount Vernon Nazarene University, and Nazarene Theological
Seminary. Given the changing and challenging climate of Christian higher education the work
and role of trustees is of increasing significance.
NYI, and NMI. I am not sure why these are called
the
district that engages literally thousands of people in some form throughout the year camps,
retreats, Bible quizzing, BLAST, Empower the Church Day, now PRIMED. Then, of course, is
the work of NMI in the mobilization of the Church around the Ultimate Cause of world
evangelism.
If you are a member of any of the above mentioned groups, please stand. These are some of the
collection of
independent churches. Rather, we are a connection of interdependent churches. We are in this
thing together. We are counting on one another. We need one another. We are for one another.
Thus we pool the resources of personnel, experience, and finance to accomplish what none of us
could do alone.
A second vocabulary word is loyal
For us that translates first into the
Pensions and Benefits Fund for our retired ministers and their spouses. This year we contributed
$268,369 or 104% of our goal. We Nazarenes esteem the value of a quality education in a Christcentered context preparing students to effectively serve the world. For us that translates into
support of our regional university, MVNU. This year we gave $263,132 to MVNU, or 102% of
our goal. Then of course, at our core, is support of World Evangelism. Imagine trying to be a
Nazarene church or district without an emphasis on global missions. It is inconceivable. This
year we gave $697,003 or 110% of our goal for the World Evangelism Fund. This is the 32nd
consecutive year NWO Nazarenes have given more than we were assigned.
Toward the support of church planting, camp ministry, district ministries and leadership we
contributed $690,398, or 96% of our District Unified Fund. I am mindful that this has meant
sacrifice on the part of several of our pastors who have foregone salary increases or even took
am for you, how proud I am of you, and the manner in which you see and support the big

$86,000 less now than 2008 when I came to this assignment. My desire in keeping the total
allocation the same over these past several years has been and is that as churches grow the
61
percentage of income given for district support would be reduced. There are eleven churches on
our district whose district budget has increased by 15% or more from 2009 to 2014: Bethel
Community, Countryside, Findlay First, Kenton, Napoleon, Quest Community, Sidney First,
Spencerville, St. Paris, Upper Valley, and Wauseon. We celebrate and appreciate each of these.
The financial growth of these churches has offset the decreases in giving in other churches. It is
my hope for this next year, that along with every church paying all its budgets in full, and the
income lines for every church will increase as our people internalize the truths and blessings of
Scriptural stewardship.
This leads to a third word fruitful, defined simply as

hours reading what those numbers meant, I realized this could be serious, and that I needed to
give it appropriate attention.
This year we report 631 conversions, 269 new believers baptized, and 244 new Nazarenes
received into the membership of our churches. Our SDMI weekly attendance was 6,526, and our
weekly worship average was 8,350. We celebrate each person reached for Christ, and brought
into the fellowship of a local church. At the same time we acknowledge that not all of these
numbers are where we would want them to be. Last year at this assembly Dr. Warrick instructed
that attention be given to every church having not received a new member by profession of faith
or had not paid their budgets in full for two consecutive years. When I heard this, I was grateful
to be the DS in NWO. I knew our list would be shorter than most, if not all, districts that would
receive similar instructions. (I read district journals when not doing dictionaries.) Even yet, a
considerable portion of one meeting of our DAB was given to the churches that made either of
these lists, and how best to approach each one. I made a church by church report to Dr. Warrick.
I thought, given the emphasis at assembly last year, I would not need to say much about some of
these matters throughout the year, and so I did not. Thus when the year-end figures came in I was

So, in light of these things what should we do? Rewrite the Great Commission? Circle the
wagons? Create an ecclesiology to fit our circumstances? In recent years while reading the New
Testament epistles it has become plain of how our present society increasingly reflects various
characteristics of first century Roman culture in which the Church was birthed and
commissioned. At seemingly every point the Church was countercultural. Yet, in that

The next word is culture. It is defined as the behaviors and beliefs characteristic of a particular
social, ethnic, or age group. Every people group has its own culture. Usually it is passed from
one generation to the next. To some degree. Part of what I did the first several months here was

NWO District culture. Some descriptors of NWO culture would include: faithfulness,
responsibility, cooperation, orderliness,

must not be minimized in either mind or practice. Organizations, including churches and
districts, without strong foundations, AND the maintenance of such, eventually decay. However,

In the five lead measures I presented to you last year number three was that every church
develop a Living Missional Plan. This work has begun. A ReVision Team was appointed by the
District Advisory Board. This team met several times. One of our first desires was to emphasize
that your church is of God, and that given its people and its context has a unique mission. From
such eventually we provided at no cost to every minister on the district a copy of Will
Church Unique , and follow-up training. This book emphasizes that churches are uniquely
placed, gifted, and called. Some of our churches are now using this material, and reporting its
benefits.
While I felt this to be useful material, I was afraid that it might be a bit much to digest for some
of our churches, so I kept hunting and pecking. At M15 I noted a seminar I thought might be
helpful. There was the leader 40 maybe, faded jeans, untucked shirt, shaved head looking cooler

Wesleyan Holiness
I realize this is to be a report and not a sermon or theological discussion, but as many of you
know this has been on my heart. So if you will oblige me, please. Based in the recurrent themes
and teachings of Scripture, Wesleyan Holiness thought and life centers in Divine provision so as
to make us both recipients and channels of the love of God. Thus, by grace we are afforded the
joy and capability to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and the capacity to
love our neighbors as ourselves as our inner being is cleansed from self-centeredness, and filled
with the Holy Spirit. Wesleyan Holiness theology is grace-rich.
Not only do we believe the mercy and grace of God is offered to save us from hell, but also
capable of saving us from sin. We believe in preceding grace, convicting grace, saving grace,
sanctifying grace, and keeping grace.
Offering ourselves to God as living sacrifices we are, by the Spirit, being transformed into the
likeness of Christ. Thus we desire to perfect holiness of heart and lif

good for others in all aspects of their lives. By our words we share the good news that whoever
calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. By our deeds we demonstrate the love of God for
all people.
We do not believe in absolute perfection in this life, and we readily acknowledge there is a
difference between a pure heart and a mature character. We know we miss the mark in many
ways. Thus, there is always room, and desire, to grow in Christlikeness. We are not formulaic as

Johnny Appleseed Museum in the country. Many have grown up with the mythical notion of
John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed, as just a happy-go-lucky wanderer sowing apple seeds
wherever the wind blew him and them. But not so.
Actually his apples were about business. Furthermore, most of his apples were not for eating, but
drinking. All of these things could be talking points this morning, but let me hasten on. As I was
reading about Johnny Appleseed I came to learn something about the science of apples that
speaks into what I have been trying to convey, especially these last couple of years.
For whatever reason Johnny Appleseed was, on religious grounds, opposed to grafting apple

June 20, 2015
Rev. Kunselman, pastors, delegates and guests of this convention, I bring you my third report as
President of Northwestern Ohio Nazarene Missions International.
On October 8, 1915, the Church of the Nazarene formally organized what we have come to know
as Nazarene Missions International. The purpose then and the purpose now are still the same- to
mobilize the church in missions. The organization came about largely through the efforts of one
woman, Susan Norris Fitkin. To me, Susan represents the idea of Nazarene Missions
International. She was never a missionary, though in her early life she felt called by God to
become one. Because of health issues, she was not allowed to go. Although she was
disappointed, she chose to channel her mission passion into encouraging and caring for
missionaries. She began a denominational missionary society and when her denomination joined
with two others to become the Church of the Nazarene, she led the efforts to establish one for the
fledgling church.
s first president, a
position she held for the next 29 years. She traveled extensively to foreign fields, visiting and
encouraging missionaries around the world. (She was able to do that because her husband was a
very successful businessman and she paid her own way.)
Susan was a woman of prayer as well as a great organizer. By combining these two gifts, she
enabled Nazarene global outreach to survive the Great Depression. She fed Nazarenes
information from her travels and from correspondence she received from missionaries. She kept
the missions mobilization work organized and inspired American families to give to missions
even in the midst of their own economic struggles. She encouraged the people with sayings like,
Depend on God to see us through!
We never test the resources of God until we attempt
the impossible for Him
last 100 years.

Susan Fitkin never realized her dream of going to a foreign country as a career missionary, but
this remarkable woman is credited as a major player in sending out nearly 2000 other people as
career missionaries for the Church of the Nazarene. Her enthusiasm and love for the lost of this
world has been clearly translated into missionaries and many other resources to reach them for
Jesus.
I said earlier that Susan Fitkin represents the idea of NMI to me. By that, I mean, we are not
called (at least not many of us) to be career missionaries, but we are called to mission. While we
stay, we help send others to go. We encourage them, pray for them, equip them, supply them,
Northwestern Ohio Nazarenes are doing well at joining the mission. Once again, (for the 32nd
year in a row) NW Ohio has paid and overpaid our World Evangelism Fund goal, at the rate of
110%. That is over $60,000 over the goal! Combined with over $400,000 in Approved Mission
Specials, you have given over $1 million to reach around the world for the cause of Jesus! Praise
the Lord!

Why do we do these things? Because Jesus tells us to. We are all familiar with the 28th chapter
of Matthew. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the

3. 2015 NWO District Discipleship (SDMI) Report
Dr. Warrick, Rev. Kunselman, members and friends of this great assembly, what an honor and
privilege it is for me to give this report on behalf of the Northwestern Ohio District Discipleship
Ministries. I want to first thank the District Council for all of their work, input, and leadership in
many different areas. Our Council consisted of David Dooley, Joel Nichols, Marianne McCord,
Director. She has been doing a great job working with different leaders and volunteers for
several years. Kim Rollison joined our team this year as the Primed Director. We are excited
about the new energy in our Primed ministry to 55 and over. I also want to thank Geoff
Kunselman for his passion and leadership he provides for our district. We are blessed to have
him lead the way to greater days.
Following my report, I will play a video that I ended with last year. I think it encompasses our
purpose in a creative way.
directed by Mona Kunselman, had 65 kids plus staff. The Middler Camp, directed by Tracy
Stults, had 80 kids plus staff. The Preteen Camp, directed by Missy Sipes and Amy Ambrose,
had 80 kids plus staff. Thank you to all the volunteers who made this life changing event
possible for our children.

District website. We especially need male counselors for each of the camps.

participated in the Zone quizzes, 138 participated in the District Quiz, and 83 advanced to the
Regional Quiz at MVNU. We are excited to announce that Kim will be directing again this year.
There were many good comments from different churches as a result of her leadership.
Don Leonard organized the District Larry R. Fairbanks Memorial Golf Scramble. The proceeds
go toward the renovation of the District Camp Grounds. Over $2,000 was raised this year. We
will be stepping down
and handing the baton to Joel Nichols. Plan to join us on Saturday, September 12 at Fox Den
Golf Course in Celina.
Primed Ministry is off to a good start with a Spring Retreat this last month. Kim Rollison is
providing good direction. Her council is gearing up for a great new restart. We look forward to
seeing some creative opportunities to serve and grow in this vital ministry to 55 and up.
Last October we changed the focus of the Empower the Church training event. For the past
several years it has been inspirational and was offered over an evening meal on both ends of the
district. This year we changed it to a training day that offers inspiration, practical training, and a
time for networking. Stan Toler taught on Principles for Vi

a practical retooling day. Information is available to begin promoting this event. Registration will
be open in September. The Church with the highest percentage of leaders in attendance will win
a welcome sign for their foyer. Many resources will be available for your discipleship efforts in
your local church.
Each year we recognize churches that have shown advancement and achievement in Discipleship
Ministries. This year we will recognize 16 churches. The first award is called the Honor
Achievement Award. To receive this Award, there must be a Discipleship Ministries percentage
gain of at least a 1% to 9% increase in both enrollment and average attendance. The following 9
churches have achieved this award:
Cridersville, Mount Blanchard, Napoleon, Paulding, Sidney First, Springfield First,
Springfield Maplewood, St. Paris Community, and Upper Valley Community
The second award is called the Superior Achievement Award. To receive this Award, there must
be a Discipleship Ministries percentage gain of a 10% to 49% in both enrollment and average
attendance. The following 5 churches have achieved this award:
Antwerp Community, Celina, Fayette, Findlay First, and Quest Community
The third award is called the Exceptional Achievement Award. To receive this award, there must
be a Discipleship Ministries percentage gain of 50% or more over the last church year in both
enrollment and average attendance. The following 2 churches have achieved this award:
Bellefontaine and Union City

We want to continue to promote many resources offered online. Be sure and visit the website,
discipleshipplace.org and engagetheword.nazarene.org. Go to these sites for news, resources, and
information on the latest tools and webinars.
We realize over and over that as a district we are able to provide training and ministry at a larger
scale. Being a part of the Northwestern Ohio team means that we work together to provide
events to stretch and train churches to exercise their strengths to be effective soul winners and
disciple makers. As we come together, then we are able to sharpen each other better than if we
were to do it ourselves. If we do not add value to our churches then we need to re-evaluate why
we do what we do and either improve it or stop it. Becoming complacent is not an option.
Another thing we are realizing is that sometimes communications gets dropped somewhere.
When it comes to district wide events and information, we need to do a better job at getting the
right information to the right people at every level. So I want to talk to the Pastors for a moment.

information. Pastors can be either unintentionally or intentionally gatekeepers of information.
According to your philosophy of ministry or the size of your church, this will dictate how you go
about dispensing information to your church people. But no matter what your philosophy or

directives.
A big mistake pastors make, and I include myself, is that they abdicate responsibilities instead of

that, most people are not asking you to do everything. The cry of our congregation is that you set
the pace and know the pulse.
Webster says Abdicating is evading or relinquishing a responsibility. The only pastor that has the
permission and right to abdicate their responsibility is the pastor who retires. Lord help the
church who has a retired pastor still delegating and not abdicating. The noun form of delegate is
a person sent or authorized to represent others at a conference or convention. That is our role
here today. The verb form of delegate is to entrust to another person or trust someone with a job
or duty.
There is a difference between delegating and abdicating. Delegating is giving someone

the future of the church. Being in the loop looks different according to your church size,
management style, and personal strengths.
Jesus has delegated to us the responsibility of making Christ-like disciples of all nations found at
the end of the Gospels. He did not take His authority in heaven and on earth and give it away. He
still stands in authority but He calls us to participate with Him in saving the world. He promises
to be with us as we go and implement what He has given us.
Imagine a church
in such a way that people are drawn to a small group or
delegated His authority to us, making each one of
A true disciple maker is one who understands that the church is called to go beyond addition and
learn multiplication.
A multiplying church is one that empowers and engages disciples to make disciples, and
multiply by encouraging new disciples to make more disciples. The cycle never ends. New
Churches have to be birthed because there is not enough room to put them.

II. Local Support
A. Administrative Policies: We recommend:
1. That all local churches consider the following procedure for timely payment of Pension,
Education, and District Funds: the total of these funds will be approximately 10% of weekly
88
Evangelism Fund can be raised in addition as in prior years through Faith Promise, Easter
Offering, and Thanksgiving Offering.
2. All churches should enter their income each week on the website,
www.fundingthemission.org.
3. That each church reach and exceed 10 percent giving for world mission through full payment
of the World Evangelism Fund and Approved Special offerings. That no church be permitted to
participate in Work/Witness unless the World Evangelism Fund is paid.
4. That all churches begin to formulate a local budget by March 1 and send a completed
budget by June 1 to the District Superintendent.
5. That the church treasurer present a written financial report monthly to the pastor and
church board.
6. That each church provide a committee that shall count and deposit all money in a bank or
vault after each service (Manual, par. 129.22). That a minimum of three persons be present
when money is counted. That the church treasurer shall not be included as one of the counters.
7. That an auditing committee audit or examine annually the financial records of the church
(Manual, par. 129.23), and that all churches raising over $100,000 for all purposes be
encouraged to use the services of an outside auditor.
8. That when defining income for the local church, the guidelines and examples provided by
the General Board on the website, www.fundingthemission.org be consulted. Examples of
Designated Gift policies and other items of assistance can also be found there.
9. In order to encourage a sound financial plan in light of the Biblical plan for "tithes and
offerings" (Malachi 3:8-10) we encourage local churches to present a three-fold plan for giving:
first the practice of storehouse tithing; second, Faith Promise--regular weekly or monthly giving
above the tithe for missions and others; and third, expansion or building fund--monthly giving
above one's tithe. Every growing church will need to give attention to remodeling or expansion.
B. Pastor and Ministerial Staff Support: We recommend:
1. That at the establishment of the annual budget, the local church board consider the senior
pastor and ministerial staff remuneration at the annual rate of inflation and consider an additional
merit raise. All adjustments must be reported to the District Superintendent by the church board
secretary.
2. That a well-maintained parsonage or a housing allowance be provided, and that all utilities
be paid by the church. That each local church board should aggressively seek to become familiar
with the unique tax consequences for pastors and the important benefits to the local church by a
proper understanding and reporting of the pastor's housing fund/allowance. That each church
board consult with a tax advisor familiar with church Internal Revenue Service regulations as to
the most suitable way to construct his salary package.
3. That they be fully reimbursed for social security, currently 15.3%.
4. That hospital and surgical insurance benefits be provided for them, their family, and any
full-time associates. That medical expense "deductible" be reimbursed. The health insurance
provision must be constructed so as to be within the gui
Care Act.
5. That their car expense be considered and the church pay it as a local church expense.
6. That as their income tax filing is on an employer-employee basis, the church establish an
accountable reimbursement policy according to the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code in
order that reimbursed expenses can be separated from gross income. Churches are urged to also
89
set up expense accounts for staff to adequately cover all church related expenses and reimburse
when proper receipts and documentation are presented. Receipts for reimbursement must be
presented no later than 60 days after the expense is incurred.
7. That each church pay their expenses to the District Assembly, the District Conventions,
PALCON, and as churches are able, that they cover the expenses of their pastor for all
appropriate district, regional, and general church training.
8. That every church make financial preparations to send its pastor and wife to General
Assembly by establishing a fund of at least 30.00 per month, and that the incumbent pastor at the
time of General Assembly receive the monies from the fund. Each church should consider a plan
to also send full-time associates to the General Assembly. This time is not to be considered
vacation.
9. That the church send them to a seminar of their choosing at least once a year as part of their
continuing education and this time not be considered vacation.
10. That the church board provide a book fund redeemable at the bookstore of their choosing.
11. That we encourage them to use their annual vacation time, with full salary and pulpit
supply being provided by the church. Vacation time is to be based on the calendar year. Time
must be used in the year for which it is earned, and there is no carry over from year to year.
to the
district calendar, and is in addition to national holidays. In the event of a move from one church
to another during the calendar year, they should prorate their vacation time. Additionally, at the
beginning and the end of their tenure when change comes during the year, vacation is provided
on a yearly prorated basis (e.g., one month of service of one year provides 1/12th of the annual
vacation allotment). Vacation time should be taken prior to the last Sunday of their ministry to a
congregation before the pastoral change. Accordingly, they should document their actual
concluding end-date as being the close of their vacation following their actual ministry time.
Such an end date is not to overlap with the beginning date of the new assignment. When they
terminate their ministry with a local church all parties recognize that accrued vacation is not
required to be paid out as a cash compensation item. The guideline for their vacation should be
based on full-time service in the Church of the Nazarene as follows: up to 2 years of service, two
weeks, including two Sundays; 2-6 years, three weeks, including three Sundays; for 6-15 years,
four weeks, including four Sundays; for 15 or more years of service, five weeks with five
Sundays. A week is defined as 8 days (to allow for a normal day off), including one Sunday.
12. That each local church provide a tax-free annuity for all full-time pastoral staff in addition
to the present cash salary. That this annuity be an amount equal to, but not limited to, 5 percent
(a minimum of $500 per year) and not to exceed the maximum tax-sheltered annuity presently
allowable by law. The Nazarene 403(b) Retirement Savings Plan or its equivalent should be
used.
13. That each church consider paying the premium for their participation in the Nazarene
Supplemental Group Term Life Insurance Program.
14. That in considering a Christmas gift for them, churches give the equivalent of at least one
week's salary.
15. That each church pay Ohio Workers' Compensation for the pastor and staff and that the
treasurer see that the proper form has been sent to enroll all ministerial staff. Check for
information on the website, www.ohiobwc.com.
16. That each church consider supporting a sabbatical/study leave for the pastor during the
90
seventh consecutive year of service in one congregation (Manual 129.10), with details to be
worked out by the church board and the pastor.
17. That each church re-evaluate its property and liability insurance at least every three years
and if possible, annually, and report it to the district office.
III Evangelist's Support
We recommend:
1. That each church board set a minimum financial remuneration for revival workers of at
least two times the pastor's salary plus benefits for each Sunday of the meeting, plus travel one
way, and notify the worker of the amount at the time of the call (Manual 129.11).
2. That as far as possible finances for the revival be raised before the workers arrive.
3. That the church give proper consideration for the care of the evangelist, including the cost
of meals and lodging.
4. That, as possible, the local church where tenured or commissioned evangelists and
commissioned song evangelists hold their membership and support it with tithes and offerings,
the evangelist be supported in some of the following ways:
a. Pay the evangelist's expense to the District and General gatherings.
b. Assist in providing their hospital and surgical benefits insurance.
c. Reimburse the evangelist's Social Security.
5. That a suitable Christmas remembrance ($50.00 minimum) be sent to evangelists who
have served the church during the year.
6. That we encourage the use of our evangelists, ministerial college students, and retired
elders for pulpit supply during the summer to supplement them.
7. That churches consider a one-day summer Sunday revival and use an evangelist for the
day.
IV. University Support
We recommend:
1. That we encourage the 100% payment of the MVNU budget.
2. That we approve the matching funds program sponsored by Mount Vernon Nazarene
University and urge our people to participate. It is understood that no portion of a matching
corporation gift can be used to pay the university budget, unless expressly authorized by the
matching gift corporation. Otherwise, all corporate matching gifts will go to the university for
capital use or for scholarships. Each donor should check with his/her corporation on its
matching gift policy.
3. That we encourage local churches to set up scholarship endowments with the university,
the proceeds to be used for scholarships in the local churches.
V. Summation Clause
That the District Advisory Board have authorization to oversee and harmonize any like items
not herein stated. That each Church Board review sections II, III, and IV of this report each year
at one of their meetings.
Respectfully submitted,
Larry Fox, Secretary
Geoffrey Kunselman, Chairman

D.S. Geoff Kunselman introduced the Penuel African Nazarene Fellowship who led in a Spirit
filled and moving time of worship as they demonstrated what it means to freely express what it
Mary Jo introduced the Missionary. He told how the Lord used a 1991 exploratory trip into new
to wash across the lives of many even today. He also shared how the Lord has created a hunger
93
for bibles that has blossomed from the three originally carried into the region to now thousands
that have been delivered. The Missionary also introduced us to missions in the context of push,
put and pull.
-Push: push through your fears and other barriers that would limit or stop you from following
-Put: put down the seed of the gospel into fertile ground that the Lord has prepared before you
-Pull: pull into the faith those whom the Holy Spirit has prepared for this day
closing benediction.
Saturday morning,
June 20, 2015
At 9:00, President Mary Jo Ledyard welcomed delegates, friends and guests of the convention.
She then followed by giving announcements concerning: NMI contact forms, lunch, and
L.I.N.K.S money to be given to zone chairpersons.
Pastor Dan Campbell led rejoicing in singing songs 100 years old or more in celebration of
presented by the Missionary from Cambodia.
The Missionary from Africa spoke about how God has worked in her life when she has been
willing to take small obedient steps (SOS.)
Following a break the business session was called to order by Mary Jo. Nancy Dunson named
Ellen Baker and Jehane Hoagland as pages and Roger Blough as election secretary. The board
of tellers was named and asked to come forward.
President Mary Jo Ledyard then gave her third report as president highlighting the origination of
Norris Fitkin. MJ also shared interesting milestones in the development of what we now know as
N
MJ reported that for the 32nd
year at the rate of $110% an additional $60,000 above our goal. Combined with $400,000 in
Approved Mission Specials, the district has given over an incredible $1 Million that is sent
around the world in order to share Jesus with the lost!
It was also noted that Zone Rallies were held again this year with Cheri Kommel, missionary to
the African south field as the guest speaker. Awards were given for the churches with the
highest percentage of attendance at the rallies.
MJ then encouraged each of us to take a fresh look at our respective local mission fields noting
94
but also to Samaria (that unlikely place in our own neighborhoods and communities that we may
have previ
Pastor Louis Reindel from Bradford shared how God has used a missional heart and a ministry
partnership with the Western Talmil Nadu district in India to open the doors and working to
transform broken lives within Bradford and the surrounding area.
MJ challenged us to begin to think about how our missions efforts could be more effective if we
began to think and consider new approaches to local missions. With that MJ utilized the analogy
of remodeling since
1) It always makes a bigger mess than you thought it would
2) It always takes longer than you thought it would
3) It always costs more than you thought it should
result is SOOO much better if we will simply persevere in straining for the
goal! All that is required is SOS; Small Obedient Steps in allowing God to lead.
Rev. Kunselman thanked Mary Jo for her report and presented the ballot to the delegates.
The ballot for President and Council was presented as a single ballot this year. MJ was
nominated to serve for 2 years on a Y/N vote. There were to be 3 persons elected to the

Links Missionaries. Nancy also spoke about the upcoming Kids Mission Adventure to be held
September 12, 2015.MJ then added that the zone rally dates are set for March 28-April 3 2016.

95
D.S. Geoff Kunselman shared a conversation that he had with NW Ohio missionaries in SE Asia
