Ron Phillips

Elder- Ron PhillipsI have been a Christian for over 34 years, I was baptized right here at Southwestern. In my service to the church I have been education director, deacon, teacher, song leader and worked in all other aspects of the church. I have held the position of elder now for almost 15 years and continue to enjoy caring for the members of the Southwestern Congregation.

After retiring from American Electric Power in 2001, with 29 plus years of service, I am now a full time Realtor®. I attended college at Morehead State University in the sixty’s, and after a tour in the military, completed two bachelor degrees from Franklin University, one in Business Management and one in Marketing.

I have one son, Michael, and a daughter-in-law, Kelly. They have given me two grandchildren named Maddi and Jackson. I love teaching bible classes (especially the young ages), spending time with our grandchildren, and taking relaxing trips to Lake Erie.

Greg Raterman

Elder - Greg RatermanI was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio and have 3 younger sisters. In 1970, at the age of 22 I was converted from Catholicism. That same year Mary and I were married. Shortly there after we started attending at Southwestern. We have 3 children-Cynthia, Cheryl and Brian and 1 grandchild-Rueben. Mary graduated from OSU and worked as a licensed physical therapist until she quit to raise our family.

In 1973 we bought 3 acres of land and had a house built, where we still live. I served 6 years in the Army National Guard, graduated from General Motors Institute with an Industrial Engineering degree in 1971 and after working 37+ years at General Motors/Delphi, retired at the end of 2003. Mary went back to work in the OSU Human Resource Department after the children left home and is still working.

We enjoy camping and have been going to the Minnesota Boundary Waters Canoe Area for the past 15 years. Hobbies that I enjoy are: stamp collecting (mainly US), fishing, gardening (roses) and nature activities (hiking, birding, butterflies, wildflowers). I have served as an elder here at Southwestern since 1997.
