Lydell Steiner, (Vice Chair)
Lydell resides in Dalton, Ohio with his wife, Rebeca, and their two children, Sofia and Kyros. He is a Development Coordinator at Venture Products in Orrville, Ohio. Lydell received an MA in Conflict Resolution and Organizational Leadership from Eastern Mennonite University and a BA in Business Management from Malone University. He also served for three years with MCC, (Mennonite Central Committee), in Nicaragua. Some of his hobbies include farming, volunteering, and traveling. Lydell believes strongly in the need to transform how our culture views and relates to conflict. Instead of falling into either extreme of ignoring conflict or litigating conflict, he hopes individuals, families, neighbors, coworkers, and communities can create new patterns and reflexes for constructively responding to life's difficult encounters.
