Swanton Church of the Nazarene announces the retirement of Pastor Harold and Patty Ratliff.
The Ratliffs came to Swanton in 2000 to pastor the church. Pastor Harold has been an active part of the Swanton ministerial association, and Patty has been at his side and an integral part of their ministry. They formally retired at the Northwest Ohio Nazarene District Assembly on July 27. Pastor Harold’s last Sunday to preach at Swanton Church of the Nazarene will be Aug. 30.
They have touched many lives in the 20 years they have ministered here, and will be missed greatly as spiritual mentors and friends. They have requested not to have a party due to the COVID virus, so we would like to shower them with love and good wishes. May God bless them in amazing ways as they enter the next chapter of their lives.
If they have touched your life in any way and you would like to send them a card to wish them well in their retirement, please send it to : Pastor Harold & Patty Ratliff, c/o Swanton Church of the Nazarene, P.O. Box 37, Swanton, Ohio 43558.
