Sheryl’s Commissioning

WP_20150616_015WP_20150616_020 WP_20150616_018 WP_20150616_016

Some say that the Commissioning and Ordination Service on Tuesday evening is the high point of the conference. This was the first one that we’ve attended and we found have to agree. The folks that were honored with new stoles and titles have all spent many years in service and study to get this far. Our own Sheryl Seitz was commissioned during the service. You’ll see her in the second row of one of the pictures – I tagged her with a red circle.

Sheryl and her husband Tim were part of our Otterbein family for many years until they left to begin her full-time student/ministry several years ago. She was just appointed to her third charge at Clyde UMC. We’re all very proud of her.
